Jeondong Catholic Church, Jeonju
(3.2/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • Looked like an old building. Although it is possible to enter the yard of the Cathedral building is not permitted. Like the Cathedral of a foreign country. In addition to the meaning of the Cathedral, not much unwilling to watch.

  • 殿洞聖堂是適合拍照的好地點,如果穿上復古的學生裝拍照,感覺更不一樣~ 算是很有趣的體驗…… 對面就是慶基殿,可一起遊玩~ 
  • The European tour will not only take the friends the Earl went ... There is no having to pre-book a squealing earthy celebrates only one shot the photo ... What better way to have even more at the entrance of the Hanok Village keeper group ...
