8 Scenic view of Wonju
Yongsomak Catholic Church
1857, Guhaksan-ro, Sillim-myeon, Wonju-si
Yongsomak Catholic Church is the third church to be established in Gangwon-do Province, and its compactly built brick building and towering spire accurately represent the architectural style for small catholic churches in the 1900s. Surrounded by tall zelkova trees, it has a peaceful ambience unique to old churches, well harmonized with the secluded village. The church is small and simple inside, but a sense of warmth from the old building make visitors want to stay longer. The church has been designated as Gangwon Provincial Tangible Cultural Property No. 106.
