Hamel Monument in Jeju island


On the way of 'Olle' trekking I arrived at the coast (द्रगों हेड)and sketched Hamel Monument under the skirt of Sanbang-san mountain.This monument was erected On 1980 in memory following historical fact .........On August 16th ,1653 the Netherlands ship, De Sperwer , was lost in a storm and landed on the coast (Dragon Head) with Hendrick Hamel and his shipmates aboard. After staying 13 years in Korea,Hamel returned to the Netherlands to write the first description of Korea ever published in the West.
