Besides serving as the seat of Seoul's archbishop, Myeong-dong Cathedral remains the symbol of Catholicism in South Korea. Completed in 1898, the imposing structure is dedicated to Our Lady of Immaculate Conception, regarded as the patron saint of the Korean nation. Admire the towering brick building, a prominent example of the Gothic Revival style, or step inside to admire the lavishly decorated walls and stained glass windows of the interior. You can take part in mass, in English, every weekend. Plan a Seoul trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • The most beautiful cathedral in Seoul and a popular tourist spot. The choir sings beautifully at the daily masses.

  • A beautiful place of historical and spiritual significance in Korea. By far my favorite church in the whole country! The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The Christmas decor was breathtaking. I will visit whenever I can.♡
