Zalongo Monument

Zalongo Monument

Under Mt. Zalongo just outside the settlement of Kassope stands this monument commemorating the mass suicide of women and children here over 200 years ago. After rebel fighters from the village of Souli were defeated in battle against the Turks, the Greek women from the village found themselves trapped by the opposing forces in the mountains of Zalongo. Rather than being captured and enslaved, the women jumped off the cliffs with their children. The monument is comprised of large stone figures of women and children holding hands and is a silent yet powerful tribute that is sure to move all who visit it.
