Tunxi (or Tunki) is the seat of the Latin Catholic Apostolic prefecture (a pre-diocesan jurisdiction, not entitled to a Titular Bishop) of Tunxi / Tunkien(sis) (Latin adjective), which depends on the missionary Roman Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples. It was established on 1937.02. 22 on territory split off from the then Apostolic Vicariate of Wuhu (now a Diocese). No statistics available.

It has been vacant indefinitely without Apostolic administrator (possibly dormant) since the death of its only incumbent: Father José Fogued y Gil, Claretians (C.M.F.) (born in Spain) (1937.04.24 – death 1954.01.24).

Tunxi District forms the central district of Huangshan City, Anhui Province, eastern People's Republic of China. It has a population of 150,000 and an area of 249 square kilometres (96 sq mi). Tunxi District has jurisdiction over four subdistricts and five towns.

The most well-known tourist spot is the Old Town, although Tunxi is also close to the Huangshan Mountain Range and  Hongcun Village, both of which are World Heritage Sites.
