Video: A 20,000 Year-Old Underwater Pyramid Discovered In Mid-Atlantic In Portugal


News reports in Portugal have stated that a huge underwater pyramid has been discovered between the islands of São Miguel and Terceira in the Azores. According to the reports, the pyramid is perfectly square, and oriented by its cardinal points.

The Azores are an interesting region which consists of a chain of nine volcanic islands in three main groups that are roughly 930 miles west of the capital, Lisbon. They are all situated around the fault lines between the North American, Eurasian and African tectonic plates.


The pyramid was found in an area of the mid-Atlantic and it is believed that the structure has been underwater for about 20,000 years, which is considered to be the time of the last ice age where glaciers were melting.

It is said that the amateur sailor-Diocleciano Silva first discovered the structure, and estimates obtained using GPS digital technology put the height at 60 meters, with a base of 8000 square meters.

Silva discovered the pyramid while fishing on his yacht in the area. He discovered the structure through bathymetric navigation and its tip is submerged around 40ft.

Videos posted by Portuguese media with English subtitles discussed some interesting points that explore the authenticity of the story, and the possible location using some maps.

But for security reasons, the exact coordinates of the pyramid have not been released, and it is said that the navy has increased its patrols in the area to prevent possible intruders from exploring the area.

Currently the Portuguese Hydrographic Institute, under the instruction of the Navy, is analyzing data to determine whether or not the structure is man-made.

Experts say in-depth investigations are beginning to point to the possibility of an underwater volcanic hill based on more recent studies. It has also been predicted by analysts that there may be two other pyramids in the area, as images suggest there could be a design link to that of the pyramids built in Egypt.

Local newspaper-Diário Insular has quoted Silva as saying that “the pyramid is perfectly shaped and apparently oriented by the cardinal points”. Silva believes that the pyramid may be a remnant of the legendary lost world of Atlantis, which sank into the ocean after a failed attempt to invade Athens.


The legendary Atlantis was first mentioned by the Greek philosopher Plato in his dialogues: Timaeus and Critias. Written in c. 360 BC., according to Plato’s dialogues, Atlantis was a naval power lying “across the Pillars of Hercules”. It had conquered many parts of Western Europe and Africa 9,000 years before the time of the legendary Athenian lawgiver, Solon. After a failed attempt to invade Athens, Atlantis sank into the ocean in a single day and night of misfortune.

The major task facing the team working to unravel the mystery about the structure is to determine whether the pyramid was built by a civilization, or if it was the result of natural occurrences.


Not long ago, archeologists from the Portuguese Association of Archaeological Research (PAAR) discovered evidence on Pico Island, not far from where the pyramid was discovered, that suggests that humans had existed in the Azores region before the arrival of the Portuguese thousands of years ago.

Based on this discovery by the PAAR, many believe that the pyramid could have been built by a different civilizations… long before the arrival of the Portuguese on the island.

  1. Well, you presented an interview with some guy. I can find you a guy who will admit, that Earth is being ruled by giant lizards. So much for credibility. 9,000 years before Solon there was no such city as Athens, there were no neolithic even. People in Western Europe kept living in caves and huts, hunting for wild animals and collecting wild plants to eat. So much for conquest Europe. Grow up, guys.

    • How do you know that.? You have been brainwashed into thinking the way you do because that is how we are taught in our schools. Break away from the norm and realise the Earth is thousands of millions of years old. To only regard the last 10,000 is folly.

      • U are silly and folly..
        The above article put a captain of someboat and a tv reporter…
        Captain of someboat and a tv reporter…really..?
        And everywhere i go i seem to stumble upon the same video..the same video…really?
        It seem that u have been brainwashed by this article..
        How do u know earth is thousand of millions years old?
        Science? History? Or brainwashed by this article that people created just to make another vira in the internet

        • He is not just some captain, he is a douctor an since the the moment of this report. The material was sent to cultural entidies an here the think gets tricky because this clip was in in TV,RTPCanal1 ou RTPAÇORES iam from AZORES, tERCEIRA, you can cleary hear in Portugueses language the material such as the probe image was sent to the marines and cultural entidies. I already send once a message asking for a especific name or organizasion witch they send the material, but no answer, more than 3years ago i think…

    • Dont think athens has the defense against atlantis.
      According to Plato, because atlantis failed attempt on athens, they sank underwater, according to Plato atlantis was an advanced civilization where others civilization around that time were still stone age…athens stone age much more powerfull than atlantis..
      These three are morons, to think back that science and history we learn at school saying that there were less land and more water on the face of the earth(on the past), how come they built such monument deep under the water and it looks like an impossible task during 5000-3000bc when the egyptian built the pyramids.

      • Are you seriously this f….ing stupid…or are you 12 yrs old?? I can’t help myself, my GOD…it wasn’t built underwater MORON,it would have been built many thousands of yrs ago when it was land there…rememeber moron…Atlantis SUNK. I mean my God

        • Laughable indeed, and what’s his problem with “civilization” going back much farther than is now accepted, if anything the more the scientists claim to know the more they find/discover, the more one realizes they don’t know to the point that you’d think they’d stop claiming to know anything. I can recall that scientist? Robert Shock? making statements that he had to finally eat his words over, admitting years later that he was wrong about many places like the finds off the coast of Japan. When you consider the fact that our earth is hit by meteors with a certain amount of regularity it isn’t hard to see how many previous civilizations could have been wiped out, how many of our current civilizations people would be able to survive the same catastrophic events if they happened tomorrow-not many no matter how much they may have prepared for it and without humans who are dumb enough to destroy that which we all depend on, the Earth does an amazing job of slowly doing away with most all traces of civilizations. They claim even today to “know” that eventually the entire limitless universes will simply all die out leaving nothing but empty space and they say this even as they observe new stars constantly being made, how can they say that with a straight face?

    • I could not agree more, the internet is awash with these vague assuming articles jumping to massive conclusions, zero science, zero reasoning and enotmous leaps of assumption – I guess its all just click bait rubbish.

    • Your a sheep. Only believing what historians say… Why you think their guarding the area more now? They don’t want anyone to discredit their version of history… Wake up Steeple the truth is out there…

    • At that time there was no civilization on mainland Europe. The most ancient cradle of civilization were all around Greece and in around the Middle East and China. No people from these areas went deep into Europe as there was nothing to take and considered it too cold for longer living.

    • Yeah because the Egyptians were totally living in caves making no significant advancements at that time whatsoever, are you really that ignorant?

    • there is nothing to dismiss here except your framed limited perception. just because your text books didn’t say it, it is probably worth looking further into… if you’re willing to see beyond the text book check out graham hancock and go down that rabbit hole, then you can apologize for being so obtuse.

    • This is your safe little belief, nothing more. You would have been a flat earther back in the day too. One day you may wake up to the fact that we really know next to nothing about human history, but don’t worry, no breath holding here.

  2. two heres back when i was on my pc on geografie class i was seeing a piramide shaped structure in the middle of the atlantic ocean and i asked y teacher what it was “nothing” she sayed…well i guess i am right all along

    • It takes me almost a year to fully understand the fisrt 3 words of ur comment, “two heres back when i was on my pc” was actually “two years back”…welldone for giving me a riddle to solve, and what the hell is sayed?
      I dont wanna waste another year of my life to solve another one….

      • it’s actually funny how one person to ridicule and put down someone’s thought’s. And then you have the audacity to mention his spelling. Who the hell do you think you are? Look at your own attempt at spelling. [You] is not “u”. I will refrain from showing you and everyone else how ignorant you actually are by not critiqueing your entire attempt at tying to form a complete paragraph or sentence. I am beginning to think your about eight years oldIor perhaps mentally challenged ,eiether way shut your meat holster.

          • Touche! I can’t figure out if it’s due to texting and people are just used to spelling words that way or if they just aren’t good at spelling, a person used the word rattle but spelled it raddle, that’s spelling it like it sounds to them but when the use u for you and ur for both your or you’re that seems like texting talk. The older I get the more I’m glad I use my dictionary app.

  3. Hurrah! History is being made of history discovered. Protect your discovery, but please, share your results. The discovery of these pyramids will bring to the public, what were “actuals”, and not just the “speculations” of well-meaning historians.

  4. I’m a local and these news made a big stirr around here when it first came out, over an year ago. Unfortunably, it appears to have only been a glitch on the instruments, as the dephts do not match with underwater topography of the area. Furthermore, the area is a popular diving place due to the presence of underwater volcanic vents and small reef, and is therefore well explored, and such a structure would have been discovered years ago.
    As for the legends about the islands being inhabited before the portuguese found them almost 600 years ago (and not thousands, as written above), there are indeed reports of artifacts from ancient civilizations found on the westernmost islands, but they are yet to be accepted by the historian community.

    • Unless it doesn’t happen in this area there are times when due to storms that the sand on the sea floor can be moved to the point of uncovering things such as these only to have them covered up again. So no matter where you are bring your camera take some pics so we all can at least decide for ourselves.

  5. I would advise you to confirm your posts before posting them.

    You are also responsible for the information you pass to all those who believe in you.

    So be accurate.
    Be carefull.
    And be true.

    This is old news… and it was diacussed over an year ago.

    People like you contribute to the people ignorance and stupidity.
    So, avoid it.

    Check firat. Post later.

  6. This is fake. This association is a fraud and a scam that has for years claiming to find absurd archaeological evidences in Azores. They dont even are archaeologist.

    Its a shame for our class.

  7. I believe I may have located the structure in question on google earth. 37.934193, -26.372237 have a look. Does anyone have access to more detailed topographical maps of this ocean region?

  8. This is just an old digital vectored chart that shows a large underwater hill. They are just approximations drawn by line vectors. A circular flag pole would have made the same vector shape. Vectored charts (computer generated) use less memory than raster charts (photo of paper chart) because the computer can quickly draw lines from known points to give skippers approximations where shallow water is. Many people bought vectored chart plotters because they were less expensive. Now that computers have drastically dropped in price, we use the larger raster charts for waters we travel often and vectored for the rest of the world for trip planning. A big advantage of vectored charts is since the computer is generating the chart from known sounding location, we can change what data is on the chart. You can turn off buoy locations, cable locations, and so on. Which makes them easier to read. You can’t do that with a raster chart, because its just a photograph of a printed paper chart.

  9. They say in Portuguese “Tutela da cultura” But what entidie analyze and have the real data to the public confirm? Dont forget they can lie to you very easly, see to believe, if you belive in just what you hear andsee in the news well you are need to think twice. the media is always a part of hiding knologe from the peploe

  10. Yes believe in what you are told ,the Earth isn’t that old coz God hadn’t created it yet .Plus God is very real because that’s what you have been brainwashed to believe

  11. Why do people keep going on about Atlantis, READ Plato ! He creates the concept of Atlantis as a construct to discuss what the perfect civilisation might be like, it never existed, it was merely a conversational example. These pyramids were supposedly discovered years ago, what possible reason could there be for their suppression, if they were real there would be so many archaeologists wanting to pin their fame to it there is no chance it would still be only mentioned on conspiracy sites. Just because people in authority refute something does make it true, anymore than the anterior view!

  12. The idea of sunken architecture and evedence of ancient people’s lives being in locations that are now found beneath the sea, should not surprise people. It is scientifically accepted that the planets sea levels are higher now than 10’000+ years ago by somewhere in the region of 300 to 400’ not surprising if we accept the idea that we are now living in an epoc that is post ice age and that we understand that the coastal boundary of the land masses would be irrefutably changed by the melting ice caps which would result in the need for people’s to take refuge from low lying coastal settlements to higher ground.
    The idea of a global deluge (due to asteroid impacts ?) and the many different cultural legends that say it happened … it is hardly surprising, if you consider that people would have had to migrate away from long established habitual areas, the truth of this global flood is not if it happened in 40 days and 40 nights it is that we are still living in it now …… meaning that the majority of the waters have never receded (refrozen into ice caps) leaving only a fraction of societies most mountainous architecture that can be uncovered and studied in this day and age. That’s a jigsaw puzzle with 80% of the pieces missing from the box …. not surprising that the few refugees that managed to restart civilisation have a skewed sense of our past history; with stories and legends of what sounds highly outlandish in to days context.
    10’000+ years of fish shit and sediment along with coral growths etc, would do a excellent job in disguising the past that must surely be below today’s seas.
    Think what you will …. but try to leave a little space for an evolving understanding of the truth as we have only been studying these issue for about 200 years, the 1st archeological studies where not exactly scientific … (bunch of wealthy Europeans with dynamite stealing cultural artefacts for there own grandeur) and history has always been influenced by the powerful and rich (religion and politics) and those with an agenda, Middle Eastern Islam is wilfully destroying history so as to iliminate any questions that may refute the viability of their beliefs.

    These are big questions with many global sites providing evidence that can not be easily explained.
