About Seoul

Seoul is the capital city of South Korea as well as the administrative and commercial centre of the country. Due to its great economic development it is now considered a global city.

Among the places of greatest interest are the following:

The Gyeongbokgung Palace is a palace built by Lee Seong-Gye King at the end of the 13th century. The building served as the residence of the Royal family and also as a Centre for meeting with officials responsible for the administration of the country. If you visit the Palace you can visit many pavilions and the National Folk Museum of Korea that operates part of its facilities.

The Changdeokgung Palace, is a palace that stands out not only for having served the Kings of the Joseon Dynasty, but also for its beautiful green areas in the famous garden Huwon residence. This building is a perfect sample of Korean architecture that has remained almost unchanged to the present day.

The Changdeokgung Palace, was a Palace used as a resort for the Royal family and the emperor. It was built at the beginning of the 11th century by the King Sejong. Various structures such as the front door, the Sungmundang corridor and a curious Pagoda can be highlighted in the Palace.

Ancestral Royal Jongmyo Shrine, is a Confucian Temple of great historical value because its structure has remained intact since its construction in the 14th century. Due to its importance it has been declared the patrimony of humanity by Unesco.

Jogyesa sanctuary, is one of the major Buddhist temples in the city and one of the most popular among tourists for the belief that there lies the remains of Buddha. The temple has a colourful decoration and inside you can see a giant statue of Buddha.

N Seoul Tower is a building that has become one of the representative icons of Seoul. It is one of the best places to have a panoramic view of the city, especially at night when illuminated with the lights of the buildings.

Bukchon district, is the ideal place to discover how were the traditional houses in the ancient Korea. Just taking a small stroll through this place is enough to feel as if you had gone back in time, and feel as if you were living in the "Hanok" which was how it was called in the past in Korea for this type of housing.

The National Museum of Korea has an incredible collection of works of art and historical relics that tell the history of Korea. This museum also stands out for its architecture, which resembles the ancient Korean fortress.
