Christmas tree in Gubbio

On the slopes of Monte Ingino, outside the city of Gubbio, one of the most amazing Christmas trees of the world is built every year. The tree is 650 meters high and 350 meters wide and is lit with 3000 multicolor lights along 8,5 kilometers of cable. Each year it takes many volunteers a couple of months to complete this christmas tree.

On December 7 2014 at 6 pm Pope Francis will light “The World’s Largest Christmas tree” in Gubbio – with his tablet! The tree stays lit each year until January 10th.

Merry Christmas to everyone!
