Cathedral of Gurk

Gurk Cathedral is one of the most famous monuments of religious art from the 12th century.

It dates back to a foundation by St Hemma. The interaction between many renowned artists has made this former episcopal church a to-tal work of art in which diverse styles are represented. The highlights include the tomb of St Hemma in the crypt with its 100 pillars (1174), the Baroque high altar by Michael Hönel (1632), the pietà by Raphael Donner (1741), the Gurk Lenten veil made by Master Konrad (1458) and the unique late Romanesque paintings in the Bishop’s Chapel (1263).
