The World’s Largest Christmas Tree 2023
The 43rd edition of the World’s Biggest Christmas Tree in Gubbio will be held from 7th December 2023 to 7th January 2024.
The tree, which has now entered the Guinness Book of Records, has been built since 1981 on Mount Ingino, which soars behind the town of Gubbio. Specifically, it is made of about 700 luminous bodies of various types and colours, is over 750 metres high and occupies an area of 130,000 square metres. Furthermore, it has its roots inside the walls of the medieval city and reaches as high as the Basilica of Sant’Ubaldo thanks to its star, located on top of Mount Ingino.
The tree, as per tradition, will be lit on 7th December, on the eve of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Lighting times will be from sunset until late at night over the Christmas holidays.
