Nampyeong-Moon Clan's Original Residence Area

Looking for some culture and history? Not too far away there is a place called the Nampyeong-Moon Clan's Original Residence Area. (남평 문씨 세거지)
This place is where the Moon clan made so that many generations to come could live here. As of now there are 9 houses and 2 pavilions and a wall that protects the area.
In this little town there is a building called the Subongjeongsa which is the main building located in the center of the entire area. It was used as a gathering place for the clan which has some beautiful gardens and was also used as a place of learning.

Another building the Insumungo which houses 10,000+ books and the clan treasures, started out as a small building and then renovated into a bigger building with an additional building to read books.
This place is such a beautiful place to just soak up culture and get lost in. If you want some amazing pictures in Korea or maybe want to go on a date this is your place :) I hope to see you there.

Check the map below for an idea where it is located and for detailed information type in (대구 달성군 화원읍 인흥3길 16) into google maps for more info.
