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!

This catholic church is in the hanok village. Different architecture that it is not Korean style in a slow city. Just take photos if you pass by. We saw a couple taking wedding photos there.. still very crowded but ok to just pop by

We can only take photos from the outer building but not able to enter the hall. Standing in front of the hall give a peaceful feel despite the crowds out there trying to get a good shot of the cathedral.
