UNDERWATER CITY OF CUBA

Nearly two decades ago, when a team of explorers were working on an exploration and survey mission off the western coast of Cuba, their sonar equipment picked up a perplexing series of stone structures lying some 650 meters below the surface. The structures seemed to show symmetrically organized stones reminiscent of an urban development. There was a lot of excitement and people started to believe that this was indeed Atlantis!

The ADC (Advanced Digital Communication) team used advanced Sonar equipment to study the Cuban waters when they noticed strange rocks and granite structures on the seafloor. The objects were symmetrical and geometrical stone shapes unlike what you would expect to find, closely resembling remnants of an urban civilization. The search covered an area of 2 square kilometers with a depth of between 2000 feet and 2460 feet.

For a closer examination, the team sent an underwater visual robot that re-recorded images of the structures in better resolution and clarity. The new pictures determined formations that were slightly pyramidal, while others were circular, made of massive smooth stones which resembled hewn granite. The size of the pyramids reportedly measured approximately 8 feet by 10 feet in height and width. Some rocks were stacked upon each other while others were not and at much further distance.

Findings suggest that such magnificent stonework would have taken 50,000 years or more to sink to such depths of the sea. It was beyond the capability of cultures of that time to establish such complex structures. The rock formations could be miraculous creations of Mother Nature and nothing more.

Greek authorities who investigated the site found no supporting evidence that this was an ancient city port that was lost to the sea. After an extensive investigation they concluded that the underwater structures are a fossil feature from the Pliocene age which has since been exhumed by sea currents.
