Construction was completed in the late 1990s. It is fed and drained by the small river Doxa, which empties into the plain of Feneos. In the heart of the lake on a small peninsula features a small church of Agios Fanourios. The Saint George Monastery in Feneos was relocated to higher ground, north of the lake. The lake is surrounded by pine forests.
It is a magic scenery that it could easily thought to be in Switzerland. Trees are mirrored in the lake, beautiful colours from the leaves and a small church that everyone stops to light a candle. Upon arrival you will find a small street market with local specialities and products.
In high season you have the opportunity to ride a horse across the lake. For those that are braver they can swim in the lake’s crystal clear waters.
