Lake Doxa 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.
