What people are saying:

I didn't expect the religious level here so strong, to pay special attention to avoid religious cultural conflict.

Introduction

Myeongdong Cathedral is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Seoul. Located in the city’s Myeongdong neighborhood, the cathedral was completed in 1898 and serves as a symbol for Catholicism in Korea. In the 1970’s and 1980’s, Myeongdong Cathedral became a focal point for the democratic movement in Korea and has played an important role in the country’s expansion of human rights. The architecture inside the cathedral is quite beautiful and it very much is worth a visit.
