About the Location:

Maghdouche is well known for harvesting the orange flower and using it in local products, such as orange-blossom water, marmalades and syrups. At the beginning of the spring season, locals, farmers, and families all come together and participate in picking beautiful flowers to be sold or distilled. Join the villagers in picking out the flowers and enjoy a beautiful day in the sun. Then visit Maghdouche’s most famous site, Our Lady of Awaiting, a cave where it is believed that Virgin Mary waited for Jesus while he visited neighboring villages. Behind the shrine, you can find an old Roman trail and carved stones that illustrate biblical events. Come visit and take in a breath of nature and fresh air.
