  • Information
    Introduction
    The Seosomun Gate area, which is located outside Seosomun Gate, was used as a persecution site in the 19th century before it turned into the local park of today. In addition to the leader of the Donghak Peasant Revolution and other active revolutionists, 44 Catholics were suppressed and martyred here, making the area a holy site for Korean Catholics.

    On May 15, 1999, a memorial tower was raised at the center of the park in honor of the martyrs. In 2013, Seoul's Jung-gu district also founded Seosumun Holy Shrine History Museum with a memorial exhibition hall in their honor.
