Travel Tips
The Goseong Lee head family estate is located near the Sinsedong Chilcheung Jeontap(seven-story pagoda) and Andong Imcheonggak, so it's a good idea to include them in your plan for the day.
When traveling by bus or taxi, get off in front of Beobheung underground passage. After passing through the tunnel, Sinsedong Chilcheung Jeontap (seven-story pagoda) will be visible to your left and the Goseong Lee head family estate will be directly in front of you. Andong Imcheonggak is approximately a three minute walk from this point.
