[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Liliaceae - Ornithogalum sp.
Several ornithogalums look too much alike for me to identify the exact species through the pictures I have.

Ornithogalums are commonly called Stars of Bethlehem

This species is probably closest to O. unbellatum who's details are below

perennial herbacea : 20-50cm
flowering time: April - June

Sub-mediterranean distribution
Found at altitudes up to 1600m

This plant is toxic, especially its bulb.
