Gyesan Catholic Church

Gyesan Catholic Church was first built as a traditional Korean building in 1899. However, the original building was lost in a fire in 1901, and the current building was designed by Bishop Robert in 1902.
The building was designated as a Historic Heritage No. 290 in recognition of its beautiful architecture and over 100-year history. The twin towers, which is shared with Jeondong Cathedral in Jeonju, is one of the unique characteristics of the Gyesan Catholic Church. Thanks to its refined interior and beauty of the building, it is where many renowned individuals come for a wedding ceremony. Within the church, the stained glass features people dressed in traditional Korean clothing Hanbok, which symbolizes the saints that were martyred during the persecution of Catholics during the Joseon Dynasty. Gyesan Catholic Church is the oldest cathedral in the Gyeongsang-do region and it had been a part of the history of Catholicism in Daegu and Gyeongbuk for over a 100 years.
