Amongst the traditional architecture in the area, sits this beautiful old church which is very popular with the locals as it's "different" with plenty of people, both young and old posing and taking photos. Because of the novelty factor of being so foreign resulting in...More

There’s lots of Christian churches in Korea but this is one of the finest examples. Near to the palace it seems slightly out of place. Very European in style - not sure but maybe Eastern Europe, the interior is superb. One of the many attractions...More

Well it is free to entrance. It is kind of landmark also for jeonju hanook village. Just in front of the entrance you will see it.

It didn’t take long to look around. It’s quite ornate inside but the outside is a brick but church. It is located on the Mum entrance to Hanoi Village so you may as well pop in.

Very typical of a normal Catholic Church normally seen in Europe. There as a mass starting shortly after we arrived to little time to see the inside in detail. I would not go out of my way to visit unless your visiting the village itself.

Lots of locals taking photos in traditional hanbok, quite a sight! Right next to the Jeonju Hanok Village.

It's one of the first structures you see as you enter the Hanok Village area. It is the oldest Catholic Church in Korea and a popular photo spot. One of the most impressive Christian buildings in Korea.

Well, the outside, only for picture is nice. For acknowledge , nice to see actual church. But you can't go inside. You can't even pray if you are not from Jeonju. It was so bad. Compare other city church in abroad, bad experience ever.

Unlike the lavish European churches the plain interior decor is neat and attractive. The interesting exterior brick work pattern makes it quite a unique photo. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

While it is not possible to go inside, you can look through the doors, and inside it closely resembles the churches of Europe with stained glass windows and elaborate ceiling decorations.
