Yim Tin Tsai Heritage Walk

 
All things perish, but memories prevail. Just as the Italian Catholic writer and poet Alessandro Manzoni lives on through Verdi’s Requiem, the Hong Kong old village of Yim Tin Tsai, one of the oldest Catholic communities in Hong Kong, leaves its legacy through St Joseph’s Chapel, a rare historic building built in Italian Romanesque style. This unique village chapel received the Award of Merit in the 2005 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation, while the restored saltpan of Yim Tin Tsai also won the Award of Distinction in the recent 2015 Awards. Join us on this one day trip where a local guide from the village will take us through the heritage sites on the island, including the St Joseph’s Chapel, the restored saltpan, as well as traditional village houses. Trip includes a Hakka lunch.
 
The Festival will also give a special introduction on sacred music and Verdi’s Requiem in St Joseph’s Chapel, a culturally and religiously rich environment. A relaxing afternoon to discover the hidden gem of Hong Kong and learn about the music masterpieces!
