The Ganggyeong Catholic Church in Nonsan, Chungcheongnam-do Province (South Chungcheong Province), was officially registered as a cultural asset on Aug. 25.
Built in 1961, the church has unique arch beams and boasts a modern and Western architectural style.
The church was designed and built by French priest Emile Beaudvin (1897-1976) and its original structure and shape has been well-preserved over the decades. The church’s arch creates a large indoor space and its architectural and religious value is considered to be quite high.
