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 has very good view. It's much bigger than a picture, so it's not easy to take a picture in front of the church. I recommend you to see it in person because it's much grander than the picture. Near....  more »

  • An old catolic church in jeonju. It is a good place to take a picture
  • Old Catholic Church which is more than a century. The outlook might be humble but inside of it has a classic, magnificent beauty of catholic architecture. It’s a landmark figure in Jeonju han-ok village. It would be much better if there is a tour guide who can explain more about it. I heard it has a long history related with religion. Looking back at the religious history of Korea it was never easy to settle down in Korea. A pamphlet written in English might be a great help to know about this place.
