Lebanon houses the world’s oldest living olive trees! The pictures in this post are a 2000 years aged olive trees in Kawkaba, South Lebanon. 

We’ve been told by the city’s residents that those ancient trees are still producing high-end olive oil.

The trees have withstood a whole lot in their history including severe climate changes, wars, and fires.

Kawkaba, Lebanese town where Jesus spent quality time, either under the olive trees or on the water well.  Jesus went there several times to visit the relatives of his mother the Virgin May, for it was close to Caesarea Philippi in Galilee. Kawkaba is a village breathing the odor of sanctity, for it faces Mount Hermon, where took place the Transfiguration, and its olive groves received both Jesus and John the Baptist
