The Cathedral Church of Virgin Mary of the Immaculate Conception (Latin: Ecclesia Cathedralis Nostrae Dominae de Immaculatae Conceptionis; Korean: 천주교 서울대교구 주교좌 명동대성당; RR: Cheonjugyo Seoul-daegyogu Jugyo-jwa Myeongdong-daeseongdang), informally known as Myeongdong Cathedral, is the national cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Seoul. Located in the Myeongdong neighborhood of Jung-gu, Seoul, South Korea, it is the seat of the Archbishop of Seoul Cardinal Andrew Yeom Soo-jung, the highest Roman Catholic prelate of the nation.
Amazingly beautiful cathedral with long history. One of a must-visit places in Seoul. And also it is better to know the modern history of Korea and the civill movements made against the dictator in the eighties and nineties to experience more about this place.
Really beautiful cathedral, possibly the nicest looking one in Asia. Open to the public, but also important to remember that it's a place of worship, not just a tourist attraction.
This Cathedral located at the end of Myeong-dong shopping complex. Built with a gothic architecture and have a big yard. This church have a beautiful interior and a peaceful atmosphere.
For every Catholic, a nearby church is a must. This Cathedral is just in the heart of Myeongdong shopping area. However, English Mass during Sundays has only one time slot and it is at 9:00A.M. and the rest are in Korean. Always remember to come by the Cathedral at 9:00A.M., Sunday.
Beautiful place where it is easy to imagine when it once looked out from high on the hill.
