The Hemmaberg with its striking cliffs is visible well into the Jaun Valley. Find out more about the archaeological excavations, the pilgrimages, the St. Rosalia grotto and its ecclesiastical significance here.
The Hemmaberg is an elongated mountain ridge (843 metres) which falls steeply towards the north (mountain viewing point with a view into the Jaun Valley and to the Saualpe). A short walk from the car park takes you to a plateau just beneath the summit, where since 1978 one of the most impressive pilgrim shrines from late antiquity in Central Europe has been excavated, with a total of five churches and the associated hospice and living areas dating from the 5th to 6th centuries.
The site of the excavations is freely accessible. The mosaics and small finds are on display in the Hemmaberg Juenna Archaeological Pilgrimage Museum in Globasnitz.
