There is a great deal of lore surrounding the olive trees in this region due to their unique life cycle. When an olive tree is around two centuries old, a new shoot springs from its base. The old tree is replaced by this new shoot. For this reason, many people call this tree "immortal." The continuous rebirth of this tree is seen as symbolic of the rebirth of Christ as well as of Christians when they are born again.
