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.

  • It is a Hanok Village Church. The building was very clean. Playing in more and more people taking photos outside, and those who give their prayers, to name a few. Guests can enjoy a Hanok Village in the Western building and unusual atmosphere.

  • Yes there is a church (you shamefully are not allowed to enter), but it's much more an amusement park for Koreans with traditional dresses and selfie sticks. Sad to see a church lose its meaning completely.
  • It's a historical and well built church of it's century.
  • Too many persons here. It's not so pecial but famous for its location.
  • This is one of the main tourist attraction in Jeonju city. In every weekend, you will see many locals hang out in this area. Many of them were dressed in Hanbok and taking photos with their friends or family. Many couples are dating in this area too.
  • This church is just next to the Jeonju Hanok village. Easy to access. No photos allowed of the inside but heaps of people just ignore this.
