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.

  • In winter la Christmas ornaments at. Scale without big Adam. Early in the morning it's hardness of the evening where access is nice to visit in the morning and evening is twice and seemed to be compared. Big on the side of the road.

  • If you come up with images of the Cathedral? It is defaced to crack electric Cathedral. Kind of a quiet mass, Cathedral walk quietly before the father. This is hanbok-clad tourists occupied the Cathedral. The buildings were so beautiful and historically meant, but somehow I think that exists in the background of the photo is a downer. Because of the turmoil surrounding the two stars but, though the building itself is so beautiful. If you are not necessarily Catholic.

Where to stay in Jeonju

For an authentic Jeonju experience, you can stay in one of the traditional "hanok" guesthouses in the historic district. Although these usually offer an affordable option, prices can rise significantly during peak holiday seasons. Many mid-range hotels and inns can be found in the Gaeksa neighborhood, while the budget-conscious traveler has a wide variety of choices, from hostels and dormitory-style B&Bs, to inexpensive "love hotels" and even a traditional Korean sauna, known as "jjimjilbang."
