Underwater Pyramid In Azores

On September 2013, a huge underwater pyramid discovered by Portuguese amateur sailor Diocletian Silva at a depth of 40 meters off the coast of Terciera near Portugal in the Azores archipelago. Its base measures 8,000 sq m - bigger than a football field - and Silva believes it was man-made. “The pyramid is perfectly shaped and apparently oriented by the cardinal points,” Silva told Diário Insular, the local newspaper.

The pyramid was found in an area of the mid-Atlantic that has been underwater for about 20,000 years. Considering this is around the time of the last ice age where glaciation was melting from its peak 2000 years prior, whatever civilization, human or not, that was around before the ice age, could be responsible for building the pyramid. The Azorean archipelago was discovered uninhabited by the Portuguese around 1427.

One year earlier, archeologists from the Portuguese Association of Archaeological Research found evidence of other rock structures in the area that they believe supports the belief that humans arrived in the Azores thousands of years before the Portuguese.

The structures may have been built according to a plan because they’re aligned with the summer solstices.
