In Unzen-jigoku (literally means hell), 33 people were tortured to death to eradicate Christianity at this place between year 1627 and 1631,

The Catholic Unzen Church was built with red bricks and located on a little hill of Fudanohara, near the entrance to Unzen from Obama, at the point where the National Route 57 diverges to the prefectural road Unzen-Nishiarie Line. It is built in 1981 to pray for the death of Antonio Ishida and his comrades as well as the commemoration of the Pope’s visit to Nagasaki.

* It is usually closed since the church is only used for services.
