KORINTHOS

Lake Doxa

Lake Doxa is undoubtedly the pride and joy of Korinthia’s mountainous area. It’s a picture-perfect lake and –although an artificial one- it is in perfect harmony with its natural surroundings. It is nestled amid sky-high fir-covered mountain peaks called Zireia and Chelmos.
Lake Doxa is a top destination and very popular, even for a day trip only. There is a thin strip of land entering the lake waters, and on it you will see Agios Fanourios church. At a short distance on the wooded mountainside you will see the historic monastery of Agios Georgios, well-known for its fortress-like architectural style and for the traditional spoon sweet made of roses, offered by the monks during your visit. Feneos plateau lies at an 850m. elevation and there are nine stone built villages surrounding the lake and adding impressive touches to the area’s great beauty.

The quiet street that circles the lake is recommended for romantic walks and bicycle rides while enjoying the mountain view.
