Reports are emerging of a pyramid shaped structure located off the coast of Terceira Island.
Portuguese news sites are reporting on the alleged discovery of a large man-made pyramid located at a depth of approximately 40m. It was said to have been discovered by Diocleciano Silva, a private yacht owner who had picked up the structure on sonar while sailing in the area.

"The pyramid is perfectly shaped and apparently oriented by the cardinal directions," Silva told a local newspaper. The structure is thought to be approximately 60m tall and has a base of around 8,000 square meters.

Details are scarce at this point however it is thought that this could be evidence that the islands were inhabited long before the arrival of the Portuguese. Archaeological evidence on Pico island is said to date back several thousand years. Rock art, megalithic structures and other signs of human activity have also been discovered across all nine islands of the Azorean archipelago.

Not exacly correct, Portugal was never "neutral", it had to do with protecting the colonial empire from either side, against the Axis mainly because there were reasons the government feared an invasion from Spain wich apparently Hitler did not allowed due to the fear the Azores would than been used as a base, and the Allies who the govenment thought if had they joined the Axis the Colonial Empire would have been dismantled, when Japan invaded East Timor, Portugal allowed the use of Azores by the Allies in return with helping returning East Timor territories. Portugal did not join... [More]

Yesterday there was an update in this subject in the portuguese newspaper Expresso. It turns out that the Portuguese Navy did made an investigation on the subject and released the results. They also released a video with the site maps. I translated the text so that everyone could read it, here it is: Original source: Video: For better understanding of the video, "Ilha" means "Island", "Localização reportada" means "Reported location" and "Profundidade" means "Depth".
