Thought that the pyramids only belonged to the Egyptians and the Mayans? Well, think again, because a pyramid has been discovered within the region of Portugal.

“Researchers have discovered an underwater pyramid 60 meters high and 8000 meters square base near the Bank De João de Castro, between the islands of Terceira and São Miguel. The structure was identified by the sailor Diocleciano Smith based on bathymetry readings. The author does not believe that the pyramid is of natural origin. The Government says that the matter is already being investigated with the support of the Portuguese Navy.”

What makes this pyramid unique is that it is the first underwater pyramid. Also, nobody knows who built the structure. It is, however, estimated that the pyramid could date back to about 20 000 years. That means that it would have been around during the ice age.

Currently, the Portuguese Hydrographic Institute of the Navy is left with the task of analyzing the 60-meter tall relic. The base of the pyramid is also measured to be a staggering 80,000 square meters.

The Pyramid was discovered by Diocleciano Silva in between the islands of São Miguel and Terceira in the Azores.

There have been some thoughts as to whether the structure is manmade or has it been built by another life source, who knows?
