Maungakiekie, now surrounded by Cornwall Park, is  one of the largest and most significant pā (fortified village) in Tāmaki Makaurau – and the largest in Aotearoa. Climb atop the mighty maunga to see remnants of terraces and pits dating back to the 17th century that served thousands of Māori who called this place home. And it’s no wonder why. Second to Rangitoto, Maungakiekie is one of the largest of the 53 volcanoes scattered across the city.
