Myungdong Cathedral was the first redbrick building to be constructed in Seoul. It is located in one of the most affluent shopping districts in Korea. Consecrated in 1898, it was built in the Gothic style and took four years to complete. The main edifice is 23 meters high, while the steeple soars another 22 meters. Twenty different types of bricks in two colors, red and gray, were used in the construction. Sunday English masses are at 10a. The cathedral has been designated a historical site.
Unfortunately, the cathedral was being reneovated when I went, however we were able to go inside the church. Inside the architecture was beautiful, and it was quite amazing. I would defintely reccommend this on any trip. There is no admission fees, and there are no guided tours.
