The Zalongos Monument

The Zalongos Monument

Zalogo, or Zalogo, is one of the historical hills of Greece. It is located north of Preveza, above the village of Kamarina and belongs to the mountain range of Kassopaia in Epirus. His name was associated with the pre-revolutionary period of 1821 and especially with the legend of the Zalongos Dance, where the women who had resorted to the rock preferred instead of turmoil and captivity by the Turks to throw their children on the cliff and then jump, dancing, one after another at the bottom of the rock knowing that measures separated them from death.
