Jeondong Catholic Church, Jeonju

(3.3/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Constructed of red brick, Jeondong Catholic Church honors the Joseon Dynasty Catholic martyrs, massacred on this site in the 18th century. Constructed in 1908 according to a design by Priest Poinel, the church combines Romanesque and Byzantine architectural styles to create a classical structure topped with three domed bell towers. You cannot enter the church, so stroll around the site's exterior and, if you can get past the crowds, try to take a peek from the entrance into the lavishly decorated interior. Using our world travel planner, Jeonju attractions like Jeondong Catholic Church can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • It is very beautiful to visit a temple of European style in Asia, it has beautiful architectural details, but above all, the story linked to French missionaries is still more spectacular, the visit is worth

  • Indeed, the rumors as pretty Cathedral. If you do not have a mass book, a tour guide could see, but not told me that even though they did not go into mass. Too many tourists went to halos pm looks like La did not come out of the rear of the main building is photogenic Cathedral and other buildings (perhaps vicarage?) We have to take.

  • Leisurely walks is the Cathedral. If you look at the more gracious and a small chapel of the night was pretty good.
