Huge Underwater Pyramid Found Near Portugal Has Portuguese Navy Investigating, Link to Atlantis?

atlantis_pyramidUpdate: Further investigations are beginning to point to the possibility of an underwater volcanic hill based on more recent scans.[3] More information should come to the surface. Some believe this new explanation may be a coverup, but that position remains speculation at this point.

Portuguese news reported the discovery of a very large underwater pyramid, first discovered by Diocleciano Silva, between the islands of São Miguel and Terceira in the Azores of Portugal. According to claims, the structure is perfectly squared and oriented by the cardinal points. Current estimates obtained using GPS digital technology put the height at 60 meters with a base of 8,000 square meters. The Portuguese Hydrographic Institute of the Navy currently has the job of analyzing the data to determine whether or not the structure is 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 2,000 years prior, whatever civilization, human or not, that was around before the ice age could be responsible for building the pyramid. While the Portuguese Navy still hasn’t determined its origins, many might question why this wasn’t reported on sooner than late 2012. Certainly the NOAA, who studies volcanic activity in the area of the pyramid, would have discovered it through sonar imaging and so forth, as the area is heavily studied due to volcanic activity. Either the NOAA hasn’t yet come across it, they are hiding what they have found, or the pyramid doesn’t exist. The last theory does not seem to be likely given the authenticity of the find.

Archeologists from the Portuguese Association of Archaeological Research have recently discovered evidence on Pico island pointing to the existence of humans in the Azores region before the arrival of the Portuguese thousands of years ago, further supporting the notion that this pyramid could have been built by different civilizations. As of today, there is still no explanation for who created the rock art found on the islands. Was the pyramid built by whatever civilization existed prior to the Portuguese? Is it possibly not even man-made?

Here is the Portuguese news report with English subtitles for those who wish to look into the authenticity of the claims.

The Azores are an interesting region, comprising a chain of nine volcanic islands in three main groups that are roughly 930 miles west of Lisbon. They are all situated around the fault lines between the North American, Eurasian, and African tectonic plates – an interesting place to have a pyramid given the energetic qualities often associated with pyramids.

This video explores the authenticity of the story and the possible location visually using some maps. It is important to note that exact coordinates of the pyramid have not been released. It is believed that there may be a discovery of 2 more pyramids in the area, as images suggest there could be a design link to that of the pyramids built in Egypt.

  1. Any updates on the geographic coordinates?

    • A pyramid shaped structure is visible on google earth, just west of Sao Miguel.

      As anyone wondered why USA has an Air Base on the Azores?

      • zn

        Because they need to refuel their plains. I hate to be portuguese and to know that. For me, let them base anywhere else but here.

        Regarding the Piramid, I loved the news, but forget about it, it would be on the top 5 dive spots in the world, and believe me, we would make money out of it 😉

        Atlantic regards

          Sorry, low-def equipment glitch

  2. It is not “man-made” but it is constructed.

  3. The Portuguese Navy spoke trough the media and their position on this matter is that, the object is a small underwater mountain. They state the intruments used by the navy are much more accurate that the one used by the saylor and the readings do not show a pyramid. To my knowledge so far the coordinates are not revealed to the general public. here is the article in my native language (Portuguese)

      And people will constantly believe everything they want to, it’s easier to be reffusing to believe a fisherman then to believe in government forces made by politicians and people in high ranks that speak based on lies to protect “the best interest” of the people… huehuehueue

    And from the Egypt piramid the piramid in Potugal
    to the Bermuda, it’s a streat line and at the same distance each other, interresting!

    • Except that straight line from Giza to Bermuda are almost 500km north of where this pyramid are supposed to be?

  5. Vicki

    The European will NEVER, willingly tell the TRUTH about these things. Hell, some of the “scholars” say that even though the Egyptians skin is BLACK and they called their land Kemet, meaning BLACK, and you can see the obvious skin color in the writing on the walls of the pyramids and in the statues that were allowed to survive, ALL THAT and they say, they were white. Please. Just stop it Europe, and tell the truth. You can’t keep a lie hidden forever.

      What truth ? If there was a real pyramid, what would be the reason to not talk about it ? It dominated the media hen it was found, but then it was found just to be a hoax (use your favorite translation tool)

    • lil

      Please shut up idiot.

      • dharma

        He’s right.

      • Imothep

        a guy with a GPS gave an interview to a portuguese TV station. I saw it. It appeared honest info. Navy comes and tells it is debunked and fake. Something tells me there are bigger interest that it doesn’t get discovered, this will give 2 much to talk about, and media is constantly controling info. AND the portuguese government is broke to do some further research into this stuff.
