Zakroun (Arabic: زكرون) is a Maronite village in the Koura District of Lebanon.[1] It is located between Enfeh and Fiaa, some 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) south of Tripoli.

As with most of the Koura District, olive tree cultivation and olive oil production is important. The village is also known for its orange trees, the flowers of which are picked in spring to produce orange flower water.[citation needed]
