City: Seoul

Once referred to as a memorial, the Jeoldusan Martyrs’ Museum was built to commemorate the martyrs who sacrificed their lives to keep their Roman Catholic faith. Jeoldusan means ‘beheading hill’ in Korean - this mountain is where about 2,000 Korean Catholics were executed in 1866 and the victims' bodies were thrown into the nearby Han River. Around 3,000 Catholic relics are on display here, including 1,258 books, 186 ceramic pieces, 155 paintings and drawings, and 45 outdoor sculptures and statues.
