  1. DEL
    The first Europeans to inform about our nation to the western world were the crews of Dutch East India Company who were swept to Jejudo Island due to storm near the coast of Jejudo Island on August 16th, 1653. While the merchant ship Sparrow Hawk, having 64 crews including Hendrick Hamel was sailing from Taiwan to Nagasaki, Japan, it met with critical storm in Taiwan Strait and has landed near Moseulpo Port, which was Daejeonghyeon at that time. This Monument of Hamel was built in hills by the coast in front of Sanbanggulsa Grotto by the Netherlands Embassy in Korea with Korea International Culture Association on April 1st, 1980 in memory of morality of Hendrick Hamel and as a sign of friendship between the Netherlands and Korea.
