The Silk Valley, a storied past

The resort is set on the grounds of the former Magnanerie Mourgue d’Algue (“Hamada Silk Factory”), built in 1846. Once the production site of fine silks sold around the world, the Hamada Silk Factory contributed towards Lebanon’s social and economic development in the late 19th century, until it closed down for good during the First World War.
