Jeondong Church is one of the Catholic churches in Jeonju City, Jeollabuk-do, South Korea. It was built in 1914 and has a history of more than a hundred years. It has a unique style, a collection of Eastern and Western cultures, plus Byzantine architecture. It is worth visiting.
Jeonju Jeondong Church is historical site No. 288. It was the place where Catholics were martyred during the Joseon Dynasty and one of the three largest churches in Korea. The combination of Byzantine and Roman architectural styles is one of the most beautiful buildings in Korea.
The sanctuary was built during the Japanese occupation. It was designed by Father Poisnel, who designed the Myeongdong Sanctuary in Seoul. It included internal fortifications. It took 23 years to complete and was completed in 1914. Some of the bricks used in the building of the temple were made using the soil from the Jeonju Eupseong that was demolished by the Japanese National Government at that time, and the stone of the city wall near Jeonju Eupseong and Pungnammun was used as the foundation stone.
Although the red wall of the temple is beautiful, the entrance and the bell tower of the temple are more eye-catching. The entrance to the sanctuary is in the shape of a circular arch, reflecting the style of Byzantine architecture. The three clock towers are centered on the tallest one in the middle and are symmetrical. The architectural beauty is leisurely and it is definitely a popular place to take pictures.

The church is open for entry during Mass, but it is not allowed to visit during Mass. At other times, it is surrounded by a fence, and you can see the inside of the church at the door. It is not luxurious, simple and solemn.
The solemnity and sacredness of the church make this place not only an important tourist attraction in the state, but also a filming location for many movies and TV. Both the hero and heroine made their promise to stay together in this romantic place.
