Most people in the area are Greek Orthodox Christians. The majority of the valley's population comes originally from Lebanon's northern Christian villages.Their migration to the nearby valley in Syria began in the mid-19th century as a result of the Mount Lebanon civil war.[1]

Wadi al-Nasara used to be a popular tourist site before the outbreak of the Syrian civil war.
