Devotion to St. Emma
Then, as early as 1607, a pilgrimage to St. Emma's tomb began to be made. The route would begin in Slovenia and go over a mountain pass to conclude at the Gurk Cathedral on the Fourth Sunday of Easter. This pilgrimage took place for hundreds of years until the wars of the twentieth century interrupted the annual event. However, in recent years the pilgrimage has seen a revival and every year larger groups of pilgrims are coming to St. Emma's tomb to ask for her prayers.
