The largest Christmas tree in the world – Gubbio
Up to January 12, 2020, a Christmas tree 750 meters high on the slopes of Monte Ingino
From December 7 to January 12, 2020, Gubbio is home to the largest Christmas tree in the world.
Since 1981, a tree of colored lights has been realized in Gubbio on the slopes of Monte Ingino. The roots sink into the walls of the village, while the star is at the top where the Basilica of Sant’Ubaldo, patron saint of Gubbio, is located.
With a base of 450 meters and a height of 750 meters, the Christmas tree of Gubbio also entered the Guinness Book of Records as the largest Christmas tree in the world.
The lighting of the Tree takes place every year on 7 December in Piazza Gramsci.
It is a public event and every year an important guest is invited to turn on the lights: in 2014 the lights of the tree were lit by Pope Francis
Until January 8th, the San Martino district of Gubbio also hosts “Le Vie del Presepe” with life-size statues in the streets of the town that make it a large open-air Nativity Scene
