Doxa lake, is an artificial lake very close to Ancient Feneos Village. The water is very calm and as you walk around the lake you adore the magnificent landscape reflected in it.  
  In the middle of the lake you will see a small peninsula with a tiny church built on it which is accessible by a narrow strip of land.
