City Tour

The city tours that took place over the week included:

Guam Seowon

Previously known as Guam-seowon, a Confucian academy, the building was moved to what is now the downtown area of Daegu in 1718. With the expansion of the city over the subsequent centuries, the Confucian Academy was eventually relocated to the Sangyeokdong, Buk gu area of Daegu in 1995, leaving the original structure empty. Now renovated in traditional style and structure, the building offers four rooms, which can accommodate two to five people, depending on the size of the room.

Gyesan-dong Church

The Daegu Gyesan Catholic Church is the only remaining structure in Daegu from the early 1900s. The church is Latin cross-shaped with a nave and transepts on both sides. Such formations are seen both inside and outside the building. This predominantly Romanesque church also features some Gothic architectural elements such as stained-glass windows and pinnacles. Daegu Gyesan Catholic Church played a pivotal role in promoting Catholicism in the Yeongnam area.
