TL;DR

A small beautiful village next to a river, which used to be a medieval town, with a marble bell tower and rich agricultural production.

The village is 12km from Tripoli and built on the southern slopes of Mount Mainalo, at an altitude of 840m. Davia is located next to a green plateau through which flows the river Elissonas. It is also known as Davies (plural of Davia in greek) since it consists of two hamlets. The village was also a medieval town under the name of Tavia and its population grew with the arrival of Albanian settlers.

Next to the old public school, which once housed the Town Hall, you will find the church of Agios Nikolaos (St. Nikolaos) with an arched bell tower made of marble from the 19th century. There is also the church of Panagia (Holy Mary) built in 1981.

There were once many watermills operating in the area and now the residents produce apples, walnuts, sour cherries and many kinds of vegetables.
