Introduction
Myeong-dong Cathedral is the main Catholic church in Korea and is also considered the symbol of Myeong-dong. Because of the grand, magnificent building, the beautiful Gothic interior and its municipal location the church remains a huge draw for visitors.

The construction started in 1894 and was completed in May 1898. The acute tower, which is 45 meters, makes itself stand out between the other buildings. The church buildings were built with bricks, but the color and shapes are all different. If you pass the figure of Christ standing in front of the church and go inside, you can see the magnificent inner pillars, the stained glass windows and the luxurious altar. If you turn around you will see the choir seats and the pipe organ on the 2nd floor. On the basement floor there is a small sanctuary and at the basement graveyard the remains of the martyrs are enshrined. On Christmas Eve, a solemn midnight mass is held at the Myeong-dong Cathedral.
