When tourists visit Napier today, they come to appreciate the results of the rebuild.
City in New Zealand
Napier, a coastal city on New Zealand's North Island, is set amid the renowned wine-producing region of Hawke's Bay. Rebuilt after a 1931 earthquake, the city is known for art deco landmarks like the zigzag-patterned Daily Telegraph Building. Along the tree-lined waterfront promenade the Marine Parade, the Pania of the Reef statue, which depicts a Maori maiden, is a symbol of the city.
