Monte Ingino

Overview

The panoramic Gubbio summit

Mentioned by Dante in the 11th canto of Paradise as the "Hill Chosen by Blessed Ubaldo", the Monte Ingino is the peak that dominates Gubbio. It is part of the Umbrian-Marchigian Apennines and represents one of the sacred areas of the area, rich in spirituality. It's no coincidence that the Basilica dedicated to Saint Ubaldo, the patron saint of Gubbio, rises majestically on Mount Ingino, in Baroque style, 850 metres above sea level.

The scenic peak lends itself wonderfully to hikes. Walking along the wild slopes of the mountain, along well-trodden paths and wide mule tracks, it is possible to ascend its flanks and reach the remains of the Rocche di Gubbio, an ancient defensive system of the city. You walk underneath imposing metal structures, the same ones that hold the silhouette of a comet star, which from 7th December each year is illuminated and makes Monte Ingino the Biggest Christmas Tree in the World.

The ascent of Monte Ingino can also be tackled comfortably by bidonvia, this is a small, cylindrical, open-top cabin with a maximum capacity of two people.
