Underwater Pyramid Found Near Portugal

Portuguese news reported the discovery of a very large under water 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 said to be perfectly squared and oriented by the cardinalpoints. Current estimates obtained using GPS digital technology put the height at 60 meters with a base of 8000 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 2000 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 the origins, many might question why this hasn’t been first reported on sooner than late 2012. Certainly the NOAA who studies volcanic activity in the area of the pyramid would have discovered the pyramid through sonar imaging and so forth since 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.


To further support the idea that this pyramid could have been built by different civilizations, archeologists from the Portuguese Association of Archaeological Research have recently discovered evidence on Pico island that suggests their belief that humans existed in the Azores region before the arrival of the Portuguese thousands of years ago. 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 as they are 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 discusses some interesting bits of information that explore 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. He believes 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. While in the Navy i was stationed at Lajes…to think I was that close…

  2. Given an approximate height of less than 200 feet I’m not sure how such sharp angles would show up given an expected layer of sea floor sediment.

    My suspicion is that the angular appearance has more to do with software artifacts than actual subsurface shapes.

  3. Obviously the remains of a civilization drowned by the great flood listed in the Bible.

  4. Do let us be skeptical:

    I’m extremely skeptical of the “picture” at the top of this article – no caption, attribution and (apparently) with scuba divers at close to a depth of 200 ft.

    I’m also skeptical of the “soundings” taken by the fisherman – a boat at sea simply cannot drive straight lines and make perfect 90 degree turns like that. Further, a fishing sonar provides only a depth beneath the boat, not the shape of an object alongside the track of the boat. That is, unless he has a sidescan sonar, something not normally found on a fishing boat.

    Finally, I’m skeptical that the U.S. government somehow has known about this all the time and is hiding it from the world (a conspiracy theory espoused by the last video). Go look at a NOAA chart (it’s not a “map”) and notice the frequency and distribution of the soundings. That NOAA hasn’t taken soundings anywhere near close enough to discover the shape and size of this object is obvious.

    • Note also the sunlight in the picture, which would not be visible at that depth.

      Looks to me like they photoshopped some scuba guys onto a picture of the Egyptian pyramids.

  5. “before the arrival of the Portuguese thousands of years ago.”

    lol, wut?

  6. Looks like I can draw a line from the Giza Pyramids to Oak Island and guess what is is the middle. Mmm…this strange object in the middle of the ocean. Totally enjoyable stretching out this theory.

  7. please note: Location of this structure almost exactly that given by Plato for Atlantis
    in the Timaeus dialogue 2300 years ago…

  8. Could that be part of the basis for the lost city of Atlantis? Atlantis was supposed to be a short distance west of the “Pillars of Hercules,” a.k.a the Straights of Gibraltar.
