This find was made in the Atlantic Ocean by the local sailor Dioclesiano Silva, who was looking for suitable fishing grounds. To do this, he used a special scanner, which detected a strange underwater structure.
The place where the pyramidal structure is located was covered with water for about 20 thousand years. This period coincides with the last ice age in the Northern Hemisphere, where the glaciers began to melt 2 thousand years ago.
According to experts, whoever lived in these places before the ice age is the builder of this ancient pyramid. The base of the pyramid is about 8 thousand square meters and the height is 60 meters.
Earlier, Portuguese archaeologists found evidence that people actually lived in the Azores many thousands of years ago. This confirms the hypothesis that the ancient civilization that existed in this region could have erected the discovered pyramid.
