News reports in Portugal have stated that a massive underwater pyramid has been unearthed between the islands of São Miguel and Terceira in the Azores. According to these reports, the pyramid is remarkable in structure; a perfect square, while being oriented by its cardinal points.
The Azores are a very interesting region surrounded by a conglomerate of nine volcanic islands in three distinct groups that are approximately 930 miles west of the capital, Lisbon.
The pyramid itself was located in an area of the mid-Atlantic, and is believed to be about 20,000 years old which means it was around during the last ice age, right around the time of the glaciers melting.
The amateur sailor-Diocleciano Silva is alleged to have first discovered the incredible structure GPS digital technology estimates the height at roughly 60 meters, with a base of about 8000 square meters.
Silva reportedly discovered the pyramid while fishing in the area.
Reports from the Portuguese media (with English subtitles) discuss the implications and validity of this discovery;
Interestingly, the location has not been disclosed and the Navy is now heavily patrolling the area. This is purportedly to protect the site, but others believe it to be some sort of a top secret area.
At present, the Portuguese Hydrographic Institute, overseen by the Navy, is analyzing its scientific data to determine whether or not the structure is man made.
Experts believe that detailed investigations might reveal that it is actually an underwater volcanic hill. Other analysts believe there may be two other pyramids in the area because images suggest a design similar to that of Egypt.
A local newspaper Diário Insular has quoted Silva as claiming that
“The pyramid is perfectly shaped and apparently oriented by the cardinal points”.
Silva explained that he believes the pyramid may actually be a lost remnant of the legendary lost city of Atlantis, which is said to have sank into the ocean after a failed attempt to invade the great city of Athens.
Atlantis is first mentioned by the famous Greek philosopher Plato in his dialogues believed to have been written in about 360 BC.
According to Plato’s documentation, Atlantis was a great naval power lying “across the Pillars of Hercules”. It has conquered much of the free world, from Europe to Africa 9,000 years before the time of the Athenian lawgiver, Solon. But after they attempted to conquer Athens the city met its demise.
Quite recently, archeologists from the Portuguese Association of Archaeological Research (PAAR) found evidence on Pico Island, which itself is not far from where the new pyramid was discovered, that suggests humans had existed in the Azores region long before the arrival of the Europeans thousands and thousands of years ago.
Based on this discovery, researchers believe that this ancient civilization may be the ones responsible for the construction of the "new" pyramid.
