Nagan Eupseong Folk Village Tours

Nagan Eupseong Folk Village, located in Jeollanam-do Province, encompasses one of the best preserved walled fortress town of the Chosun period. While there were 96 town fortresses in more than 330 of these towns at the height of the Chosun Dynasty, many of them were destroyed during the Japanese occupation. The village was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2011.

More than 100 families still live within the historic structures, going about their day-to-day tasks much like people indigenous to the area have been doing for centuries. Over 200 of Nagan Eupseong’s houses remain in their original condition, complete with thatched roofs and stonework without the use of mortar. A few of these have been converted to guesthouses for travelers who wish to stay the night.

Practical Info

To reach Nagan Eupseong Folk Village, take bus 61, 63 or 68 from the bus stop near Suncheon Bus Terminal. The ride takes about 50 minutes.
