Pilgrimspass och stämplar är en del av en gammal tradition som lever ännu i dag.

På din pilgrimsfärd upptäcker du många stämplar med Olavs kors, men också unika stämplar med olika helgon och mönster som härstammar från lokalhistoria. Denna stämpel bär Klemets Gårdens bomärke sedan 1600-talet. Du får ditt pilgrimspass stämplat med denna stämpel om du övernattar på Faffas Bed & Breakfast i Korpo.Pilgrims' passports and stamps are part of an old tradition that is still cherished to this day.

During your pilgrimage, you will find many stamps with Olav’s cross, but also unique ones with different Saints or designs emerging from local history. This one is the sign of Klemets Gård from the 17th century. You will find this one on your passport if you stay your night at Faffas Bed & Breakfast in Korpo.
