“Worth a quick visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Anything to do with the Catholic religion is usually a huge turn-off for me. But I enjoyed my brief visit to the cathedral for its association with the human rights and democracy movements, the interesting brick construction, the views and the historical photographs showing the changes in the area since the late 19th century.

“Check this out at night, It's beautiful!”

Great place to get away from the maddening crowd at Myeongdong. Look for the Guides in Red Jackets in Myeondong & they'll be able to point U in the right direction.

“Nothing Special”

Unfortunately there is nothing special about this cathedral. It is simply a relatively small catehdral located in one of THE busiest streets in the country.

“Pleasant visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Myeong-dong Cathedral is worth a visit if you're in Myeong-dong(and it's a rest from the busy and crowded streets). Didn't attend a mass, but it's nice to sit inside and appreciate the architecture and stained-glass. Although the construction outside is noisy and intrusive, the walls up separating the construction from the walkway up the hill have some pictures/history of the Cathedral, which I thought was pretty interesting to quickly glance at.

“Just another cathedral”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Nothing special. Just another cathedral and it is a small one. However, it is located in Myeongdong which is a busy hypermarket area so it is worth a visit.
