Introduction

Highlights
- Find out the little-known but fascinating life story of a French Catholic priest who lived in Kinmen for 40 years.
- This is a peaceful place to reflect upon the different kinds of heroes that can arise during conflict. 

It may seem surprising to come across the façade of a church beside Taihu (Lake Tai) in Shanwai. It's a memorial to Father Bernard Druetto, who came to Kinmen in 1954.

Public medical facilities in Kinmen weren't well developed at the time, and here at this site, in a Catholic church, he treated patients wounded from the shelling, saving lives.

After Father Druetto died, the church wasn't maintained and became dilapidated. To commemorate the French priest's contribution to Kinmen, this park was created.
