Archaeological and historical sites of Preveza Prefecture

The monument of Zaloggo is located a short distance from the archaeological site of Kassopi, from where, according to history, 63 women of Sοuli villages fell off the cliff with their children in 1803 dancing, so as not to be captured by the soldiers of Ali Pasha (1788-1822).
Acherontas strait and Estuary area is one of the 18 natural sites that have been recognized as the most remarkable in the whole region.
In this area the most famous nekromanteion (or oracle of the dead) of the ancient Greek world is spotted which lies near the northwest shores of the Acherousian lake.
Homer provides the earliest reference to the necromanteion of Acheron in his Odyssey, when Circe advises Ulysses to meet Teiresias, the blind seer, in the underworld in order to get an oracle for his return to Ithaka.
