< The route of Hanoncatholic-Ro >


This route starts from Seogwipo catholic church passing through Myeonhyeong’s House where there used to be a site of Hanon catholic church and Hongro catholic church. 

The final destination is again Seogwipo catholic church.

This route passes Cheonjiyeon waterfall which is designated as Natural Monument and the site of Hanon catholic church and Hanon volcanic crater which is called as Natural Museum.

In addition, this route passes the road where Father Émile Joseph Taquet had walked when he moved Hanon catholic church.

In 1898, at the age of 24, Taquet was sent to Korea (then called Joseon) by the Paris Foreign Missions Society. 

He remained in Korea as a missionary for 55 years until his death in Daegu in 1952.

After stints at the main churches in Busan, Jinju, and Masan; churches in Hanon and Hongno on Jeju Island; the Sanjeong neighborhood church in Mokpo, and Noan church in Naju, 

Taquet was assigned to serve as a professor at St. Justin Seminary in Daegu in 1922, a position where he remained for the rest of his life. 

Jeong’s own journey was focused on Jeju, where Taquet spent the first 13 years of his missionary work, collecting plant samples of the king cherry tree and the Korean fir. 

While spending a month at the House of Remission, a church in Seogwipo (the location of Hongno church, where Taquet had his first assignment in 1902) Jeong retraced Taquet’s steps past Hanon church and a gingko tree to Seogwipo church. Taquet sent more than 10,000 plant samples from Jeju to botanists in Europe, the US, and Japan, and even today his plants and records are still found at universities and botanical gardens around the world.

This route passes Somban-nae, a road of Heulgdam pine trees and Myeonhyeong’s House. 

On the way back to Seogwipo catholic church, you can stop by Olle market, the road of Lee Jung-seob who is considered one of the most important artists in Korea and the road of Father Taquet.
