Lake Doxa is an artificial lake 900 meters above sea level which is located in Ancient Feneos in Corinthia. The lake and the village of Feneos represent a beautiful area located on a plateau between Ziria and Helmos Mountain. The high snow-capped peaks with the dense forests of the region are a unique mountain wetland. In the center of the lake there is a peninsula, at the end of which stands the picturesque chapel of Saint Fanourios.
Feneos was the largest and most important cities of Arcadia and today it administratively belongs to the prefecture of Corinthia. The plain was crossed by Olbios and Doxa rivers but even when those rivers would burst with water the plain would not flood, since the waters found an outlet in sinks. According to legend, these sinks had been dug by Hercules, who wanted to clear the waters that stagnated there.
Doxa is considered one of the most beautiful mountain lakes of Greece, as the colors of the forest reflect on the lake’s clear water and create a unique landscape which reminds you of the Alps.
