Jeondong Cathedral

I had a great time in Jeonju this weekend filling up on bibimbap and hand made choco pies. Plus I finally got to take a walk round Jeonju Hanok Village. A interesting area with plenty to see, do and eat...

Jeondong Cathedral

The hanoks were gorgeous, but the most stunning building for me was the Jeondong Cathedral. It's a beautiful example of Roman Catholic architecture in Korea and I was sad I only had my little point and shoot camera rather than my DSLR with me...

Listed as Korea National Treasure Number 288, Jeondong Cathedral was built in 1914 by Father Xavier Baudonet. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
