Hamei Martyrdom Holy Ground is the site where nearly 1,000 Catholics in Chungcheongnam-do were buried alive during the time between the Byeongin Persecution in 1866 and 1882. When they were confronted with their death, the martyrs prayed while singing 'Yesumaria' (Jesus Maria) but it sounded  like "Yeosumeori", after that the place was called 'Yeosutgol' to local people. And then you will reach Yeoju Green Village to experience Korean Kimchi making and korean traditional costume (Hanbok) wearing; then guests will visit the Ginseng center to have a chance to taste Ginseng Juice. After Yeoju, we depart for Seoul.
