5. The Tree of One Hundred Horses (Sicily)
The Tree of One Hundred Horses, this enormous chestnut near the Mount Etna volcano in Sicily, is thought to be 4,000 years old. Its inimitable name comes from an old legend where 100 drenched knights and their sopping steeds sought refuge from a thunderstorm beneath the tree’s protective branches. It’s almost believable: This truly massive tree holds the world record for girth, clocking in at 190 feet in circumference—nearly the length of a hockey rink.
