Monastery Osios David in Drymonas. Northeast of Rovies, in a beautiful wooded area near the village Drimonas, the monastery of Osios David is located. Osios David was born in the first half of the 16th century (1519) in Gardenitsa town in Viotia. When "little David" was three years old, he was suddenly missing and his parents panicked. Six days after, he was found in a small church near his home. When they found him he said he went with John the Baptist, because he had asked him! This was a sign that David was not just a child. When he was 15 years old, he went to a monastery in the prefecture of Magnesia, because he wanted to be a monk. Because he was always very serious about his faith in progress, he commanded the respect of all the people around him and so he was given the name “David o Geron” what literally means “David the Elder”, referring to his serious behavior. The first time he was a monk, but later he became ruler of the Holy Monastery Varnakova in Nafpaktos (Central Greece).
