Gubbio is a beautiful small medieval town, located in the region of Umbria, in the centre of Italy. Gubbio is usually known for being the place in which San Francis encountered and tamed the famous wolf.
Taking advantage of the proximity of Mount Ingino, a mountain which is about 900 meters high, since 1981, a group of volunteers from Gubbio foresee to the preparation of what is now known has the "Largest Christmas Tree of the World".
The Christmas Tree is formed by various types of lights that create an absolutely particular and unique chromatic effect: 300 green coloured lights outline the shape of a Christmas tree that is 650 meters high with the centre filled with 400 multi-colored lights. At the top of the tree, a star made of more than 250 lights.
The Christmas Tree entered the Guinness Book of Records in 1991. It usually remains on during the entire Christmas period and is turned off after Epiphany.
