Catholic church with Sunday mass at 9 am in English. I believe the priest was of Irish descent. Food stands are set up on the street down the stairs from the church.

The cathedral is beautiful and they have English Mass every Sunday morning at 9 am. I recommend to go on weekdays because it will be crowded on weekends.

It is a majestic structure near the shopping district. We attended Sunday mass and the church was packed. Great location and very accessible by public transportation. Even if you don’t attend the services, it’s a great place to see.

Myeong-dong Cathedral was the first place I visited in Seoul. It's a place of recollection, but also of admiration, considering its beautiful architecture. Since it is located in the heart of the city, it is worth visiting.

No one will be able to miss the church in Myeongdong. The place is located before going into the busy shopping street of Myeongdong. At night the church is surrounded by lots of lights which provides a good shot for the church which looks peaceful...More

This is not just the most symbolic place for the Catholic church but a safe haven for activists during the brutal military regime in 0s and 80s.

Large, but relatively simply Catholic church built in the 1800s. This church had some similarities in design to Notre Dame in Paris, with the tall columns and straight-forward interior design. Mass was serene and peaceful; a nice change of pace to the busy day. Most...More
