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.

I stopped by after seeing a lot of people in front of it taking pictures in traditional clothing. The side door was opened, so I took a look inside. It was nice, but nothing spectacular. I sat in the pews for a few minutes and...More

The catholic church in Jeonju attracts many visitors, often in traditional Korean clothes, boys and girls all dressed up taking pictures and try to make it look romantic. We were there on Sunday and the building was closed.

Nothing too special going on here. It's a church... not overly ornate... just a functional place of worship

Took so many pictures of the cathedral. It's located at the entrance to the Hanok Village, you can't miss it!
