Tomb of King Muryeong-wang (reign 462-523) contains representative relics of the Baekje period (234-678). The Songsan-ri Tombs contain the graves of kings from the period when Baekje's capital was Gongju, and it is believed to contain 10 such graves. Only seven graves have been discovered so far.
The main attraction of Tomb of King Muryeong-wang is the wall painting drawn on the number six tomb-it is the only art of its kind in the world, created from the way the bricks were laid to create the wall. The tomb is shaped like a long tunnel, the top rounded like a dome. There are pictures of fire-breathing dragons on the tomb. Only the parts of the wall where the pictures were to be drawn had earth coated on, and on that earth was drawn Sasindo, the Four Symbols-blue dragon, white tiger, red peacock, and black turtle.

Gongsanseong Fortress consists of a mud castle of 400m long and a stone castle of 2,260m. The circumference and dimension of this fortress are 2,660m long and 210,000㎡ wide. It is located on basin-type hill of 110m MSL with the road linked to the downtown to the south and Geumgang river to the north. It was originally a mud castle, but most parts of it was renovated to a stone castle as it is from the reign of King Seonjo and King Injo in Joseon Dynasty. Gongsanseong Fortress was a capital in Baekje period, but it played certain roles by period in the changes of history as well as in Baekje period. Therefore, relics in each period remained in many places.

Busosanseong Fortress (Historic Site No. 5) is a mud fortress located on top of Busosan Mountain (alt. 106m) in the northern part of Buyeo. The fortress is estimated by some to have been built around 538 AD (16th year of King Seongwang) to protect Sabi (now Buyeo), which was once the capital of the Baekje Kingdom.
Busosan Mountain was once considered the guardian mountain of Buyeo and is home to historic landmarks from the Baekje Kingdom (18 BC-660 AD). In addition to Busosanseong Fortress, some of the most famous sites on the mountain include Baekhwajeong Pavilion, Sajaru Pavilion, Banwollu Pavilion, Yeongillu Pavilion, Samchungsa Shrine (dedicated to three loyal subjects of the Baekje Kingdom), Gungnyeosa Shrine, Goransa Temple, Gunchangji (military warehouse site), and Suhyeoljugeoji (site of pit houses for the Baekje soldiers). The mountain is also home to Nakhwaam Rock where, according to legend, 3,000 women of the Baekje Kingdom threw themselves into the river below after the collapse of the empire.

Jeongnimsaji Five-story Stone Pagoda at Jeongnimsa Temple: This granite pagoda from the late Baekje period in Buyeo-eup, Buyeo-gun, Chungcheongnam-do has been designated National Treasure No. 9. It is generally known as the ‘Baekje 5-story Pagoda.’ In the past, it would have been called ‘Pyeongjetap.’ As one of two extant Baekje pagodas, this stone pagoda itself is a precious artifact and very important in establishing the lineage of Korean stone pagoda patterns. With refined and creative features, it exemplifies the beauty and elegance that were imitated in pagodas built in later periods.
