First off, a pa is a historic Maori settlement or village with defensive and fort like features. There are few enough well preserved sites of that kind in New Zealand today. As one of the largest and best-preserved sites, Otatara Pa has immense historical value and is one of New Zealand’s most important archaeological sites. Taking the tour, you’ll see how the site is protected from attacks by its steep cliffs and ridges. Numerous housing terraces and food pits are scattered all over this beautiful, scenic reserve.
