THE TREE OF GUBBIO

THE WORLD’S LARGEST CHRISTMAS TREE – December

Gubbio and Christmas are a combination that has been successful since 1981, when it was decided to ‘build’ a Christmas Tree in honour of the patron of the city, Saint Ubaldo, on the slopes of Mount Ingino.
A Christmas tree over 650 meters tall, with over 250 green lights, 300 multicoloured lights, and on the top a 1,000 m² star designed by another 200 lights. Such an installation could not go unnoticed: indeed, in 1991 the Tree of Gubbio entered the Guinness Book of Records as “The World’s Largest Christmas Tree”.
