The Sunken City of the Caribbean: Atlantean Remains?

Ancient texts and many religions speak of a massive flood that shuck planet Earth in the distant past. This great deluge is said to have changed our planet and its ancient inhabitants forever.

In recent years, there have been numerous discoveries of submerged structures and even entire cities which remained hidden for thousands of years.

These submerged structures point to a much different time on Earth when our planet’s oceans were very different. Tales of sunken empires have been present in societies around the world for thousands of years. While most of them are believed to be a myth, such as those of Ancient Atlantis and Ancient Mu, other “tales” have proven to be more than just stories.

Atlantis, the lost empire, and the submerged city off the coast of Cuba, a myth or reality?


Well over a decade, a team of underwater explorers from a Canadian exploration company was mapping the ocean floor and near the western coast of Cuba. While exploring, the team’s sonar equipment detected all of a sudden, a bewildering array of stone structures, located about 650 meters below the surface. the team of researchers had found a series of unusual formations; smooth blocks, crests, and different geometric shapes at the bottom of the ocean.

The company, responsible for the finding: Advanced Digital Communications, suggested that the structures found off the western coast of Cuba were ancient monuments of an unknown ancient civilization. Symmetrically arranged stones, which appeared to be remnants of some type of ancient urban development certainly point towards a highly developed society that could have inhabited the region in the distant past.

But what happened to this incredible discovery that was on the news over a decade ago? Why are we not exploring any further? Is it possible that this discovery will change the way we look at history? Our origins? many people would agree that there are hundreds of discoveries that are kept from society on purpose. Is the sunken city off the coast of Cuba one of them?

Geologist Manuel Iturralde remained open-minded saying: “These are extremely peculiar structures, and they have captured our imagination,” said Iturralde, who is director of research at Cuba’s Natural History Museum. Iturralde has studied countless underwater formations over the years, but said, “If I had to explain this geologically, I would have a hard time.”

Maybe its time for a new exploration mission?

Estimating that it would have taken 50,000 years for such structures to have sunken to the depth at which they were said to be found, Iturralde added: “50,000 years ago there wasn’t the architectural capacity in any of the cultures we know of to build complex buildings.” A specialist in underwater archeology at Florida State University added “It would be cool if they were right, but it would be really advanced for anything we would see in the New World for that time frame. The structures are out of time and out-of-place.”

Many researchers remained extremely skeptical about the discovery since a lot of people jumped to conclusions drawing parallels to the ancient Atlantean empire. Soon after the discovery was made, the National Museum and National Geographic displayed great interest in further investigating the area, but for some unknown reason, it never happened. Ten years after the incredible discovery was made by Pauline and Paul Weinzweig, owners of Advanced Digital Communications, the discovery that was labeled as the finding of Cuba’s Atlantis and the lost city of the Caribbean was simply forgotten.

The underwater city near Cuba is not the first underwater city to be discovered

Actually, there have been quite a few underwater cities that have been discovered in recent years. The discovery of the legendary ancient city of Dwarka in the Gulf of Cambay is certainly one of those incredible discoveries. The ruins are located 131 feet below the surface of the sea in the Bay of modern-day Dwarka, one of the seven oldest cities of India. Studies have shown that the ruins are artificial in nature. Several artifacts have been discovered but perhaps none as important as one artifact believed to date from 7500 BC, supporting the theory that the remains found in the gulf of Cambay are in fact those of the legendary city of Lord Krishna. It is believed that the incredible city was submerged underwater after the death of Lord Krishna.

Another ancient city worth mentioning is certainly the submerged city of Thonis-Heracleion near Alexandria. It is believed that the ruins were submerged in the sea by an earthquake about 1,500 years ago and remains hidden until now.
Archeologists have discovered hundreds of artifacts and sculptures just of the shores of Alexandria. It is expected that the ruins are open to divers and tourists in the coming years.

The underwater complex of Yonaguni is surely one of the most important underwater discoveries of the century. The incredible structures are located near the coast of Japan and according to experts, the monuments date back to at least 10.000 BC.

As you can see, there are dozens of underwater cities that have been found in recent years. All of them tell a similar story. Earth as we know it was very different in the distant past.

  1. “50,000 years ago there wasn’t the architectural capacity in any of the cultures we know of to build complex buildings.”
    And 12,000 years ago there wasn’t the architectural capacity in any of the cultures we know of to build Gobekli Tepe, but there it is all the same.

    1. Indeed. We once believed that the migrations of people from Asia to the Americas took place at the end of the last Ice Age with their crossing the Bering Straits and then fanning out in all directions even as far as the southern tip of South America. So something like 10,000 years ago. Recent carbon dating has shown human remains in South America to be around 40,000 years old. So we were wrong. We are quite good at being wrong when we let our assumptions cloud our vision. 🙂

      1. Many years ago, I remember a woman who claimed civilization in south America was much 15,000 years + old. The article talked about how other scientists said she was nuts and they wouldn’t even work with her. Often times, scientist act like religious zealots and don’t have an open mind.

  2. The second picture is all wrong…How could there be a gap between the structures & the sea bed after thousands of years?… Sorry but it looks like an aquarium

  3. It has been written that many of these cities sunk during the three days of darkness after the Savior Jesus Christ was crucified before his appearance to these people on the American continent. Some of the cities could have been built around 400 BC and some much older. The land topography complety changed as to the low lands becoming high and the high became low as well as many cities being sunk into the depths of the sea. It would be nice if the governments would allow for a good scientific investigation.

  4. Everything we have been told by archeologists and scientists is all wrong.humans been around for 100s of thousands of years.JUST ADMIT IT AND GET ON WITH TELLING THE TRUTH.

  6. Hiya. I noticed your website title, “%BLOGTITLE%” doesn’t really reflect the content of your web-site. When creating your website title, do you think it’s best to write it for Search engine optimisation or for your audience? This is something I’ve been struggling with because I want good rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my website visitors.

  8. First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!

  9. I’m new to developing web sites and I was wondering if having your site title related to your articles and other content really that vital? I notice your title, “%BLOGTITLE% ” does seem to be spot on with what your website is about but, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.
