Feres (Greek: Φέρες) is a town and a former municipality in the Evros regional unit, East Macedonia and Thrace, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Alexandroupoli, of which it is a municipal unit.[2] Population 9,839 (2001). Feres is linked with the GR-2 or the Via Egnatia (Alexandroupoli - Kavala - Thessaloniki - Kozani - Igoumenitsa) and the GR-51 (Alexandroupoli - Orestiada - Ormenio. The Evros river along with Turkey is to the east and also includes the entire delta to the south.

Feres was founded in the 11th century by the Byzantine Greek emperor Isaac I Komnenos. Like the rest of the Greek mainland, it was conquered by the Ottoman Empire in the Middle Ages, until it was taken by Bulgaria in 1913 following Balkan Wars of 1912 and 1913. In 1920, as a result of the Treaty of Neuilly and subsequent agreements, the town was given to Greece.

The municipality was created in 1986 and included the communities of Ardanio, Doriskos, Feres and Itea. Under the Capodistrian Plan (2539/1997) in 1997, the old communities of Peplos and Tryfilli joined the municipality.
