Doxa Lake of Corinthia

Doxa Lake of Corinthia

Doxa Lake is located on the borders of Sikyonion municipality, on the plateau of Pheneos. It is an artificial lake, 900 meters above sea level, completed in late 1990 with the construction of the water dam bearing the same name. In the center of the lake, on a narrow strip of land, stands the chapel of Saint Fanourios or Palaiomonastero, the remains of an old monastery that was relocated because of the floods from one of the forested slopes surrounding the lake. The new monastery of Saint George offers a magnificent view to the lake.

Doxa Lake of Corinthia

Even though it is believed that Doxa Lake is hidden among the mountains, it is easily accessed. Once in village Mossia, take the road to the left that leads to Messino village, pass through Ancient Pheneos, or Kalyvia according to the locals, and you are one kilometer away from Corinth’s small “Switzerland”.
