The location of the mythical lost city of Atlantis has been a source of debate and speculation for centuries. It is believed to have been destroyed by a tremendous cataclysmic flood, but its exact location has never been determined.

The city had a great plain in the center surrounded by mountains and Mount Atlas at distance on the North, and the plain was divided into sections by rings of water and land connected by bridges. The city had two harbors, one on the outermost circle of water and one on the innermost circle of water. The city was surrounded by lush, green hills and valleys, and there were numerous rivers and springs that provided water for the city, with one connection to the Ocean at the west. The central palace was located on the highest hill with a large temple dedicated to Poseidon, the patron god of Atlantis. by @3Xstrange

“And now, Atlantes, let us suppose, that in the great island of Atlantis there was a great and wonderful empire which had rule over the whole island and several others, and over parts of the continent; and, furthermore, that the vast power which the king of this empire gathered into his own hands was administered in such a manner as was agreeable to the will of the gods, and that he was himself of a divine nature.”

“This power came forth out of the Atlantic Ocean … an island larger than Libya and Asia put together … Now in this island of Atlantis, there was a great and wonderful empire which had rule over the whole island and several others, and over parts of the continent.”

“There were a great number of elephants on the island, and there was provision for animals of every kind, both for those who live in lakes and marshes and rivers, and also for those who live in the mountains and on the plains, and therefore for the animal which is the largest and most voracious of them.”

“A well near the central acropolis provided the city with fresh water.”

“The god Poseidon found no difficulty in making special arrangements for the center island, bringing up two springs of water from beneath the earth, one of warm water, the other of cold.”

And describe after the destruction:

“Saw only reeds on the surface of the water…”

“The sea in that area is impassable to navigation, which is hindered by mud just below the surface, the remains of the sunken island”

“Atlantis, when sunk by the earthquake, became an impassible barrier of mud to voyagers sailing from hence to any part of the ocean”

But Where the Heck was the Capital City of Atlantis?

The most popular location for Atlantis is off the coast of Southern Spain, in the Atlantic Ocean.

This is based on the writings of Plato, who wrote about the city of Atlantis in his dialogues Timaeus and Critias. According to Plato, Atlantis was a large island located beyond the Pillars of Hercules – an area that is now known as the Strait of Gibraltar.

It is thought that the city may have been located in what is now the Mediterranean Sea, off the southern coast of Spain.

Other scholars have suggested that Atlantis may have been located in the Caribbean or off the coast of Africa.

Some have speculated that the city may have been located in the North Atlantic, near the Azores Islands, a group of volcanic islands in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Others have suggested that Atlantis may have been located in the Aegean Sea, near the Greek island of Santorini (formerly called Thera).

This theory is based on the fact that Santorini is a volcanic island destroyed by a giant eruption in 1613 BC.
Why do some scholars believe Atlantis was Found in The Santorini?

The eruption of Santorini, also known as Thera, occurred around 1613 BC.

It is thought to have been one of the most significant volcanic eruptions in human history and is believed to have been the source of the legend of the lost island of Atlantis.

The eruption devastated the nearby islands of Crete and Santorini and caused significant destruction in the surrounding region.

It is estimated that the eruption had a magnitude of 6.5 on the Richter scale and was one of the most powerful volcanic eruptions ever recorded.

It is possible that this eruption could have been the cataclysmic event that destroyed Atlantis, as described by Plato in his dialogues Timaeus and Critias.

It is also possible that the remnants of the lost city could be found in the submerged ruins which have been found around the island, such as the ruined city of Akrotiri.

Furthermore, some have suggested that the Minoan Civilization, which flourished on the island of Crete, may have been the civilization of Atlantis and that the eruption of Santorini caused the destruction of both.

Why do some scholars believe Atlantis was Found off the coast of Southern Spain, in the Atlantic Ocean?

According to Plato, Atlantis was a large island located beyond the Pillars of Hercules – an area that is now known as the Strait of Gibraltar.

It is thought that the city may have been located in what is now the Mediterranean Sea, off the southern coast of Spain.

This theory is supported by the fact that many ancient cities have been found along the southern Spanish coast, such as Tartessos and the nearby Monastery of San Miguel de Arca.

It is possible that these cities were part of Atlantis or were connected to it.

Many ancient cities have been found along the southern Spanish coast, such as Tartessos and the nearby Monastery of San Miguel de Arca.

It is possible that these cities were part of Atlantis or were connected to it. Additionally, the Strait of Gibraltar is a narrow strip of water between Europe and Africa which could have been the original Pillars of Hercules described by Plato.

All of this evidence suggests that the lost city of Atlantis may have been located off the coast of Southern Spain, in the Atlantic Ocean.

Why do some scholars believe Atlantis was Founded in the Caribbean?

The theory is also supported by Plato’s writings, geography, and archaeological evidence.

Some scholars believe Atlantis was found in the Caribbean because, according to Plato’s writings, the ancient city was located near the Pillars of Hercules. This geographic marker could refer to the Strait of Gibraltar.

This, in turn, could place Atlantis in the Caribbean, as it would have been easy to travel from the Mediterranean Sea to the Caribbean by boat.

Furthermore, many islands in the Caribbean bear strong similarities to the descriptions of Atlantis given by Plato, and some of these islands even contain ancient structures and artifacts from a period that could be associated with Atlantis.

Why do some scholars believe Atlantis was founded near the Azores Islands?

This theory is based on archaeological evidence, geological data, and other clues that point to the area as the possible location of the lost paradise.

The first evidence that suggests the Azores Islands as the possible location of Atlantis is the similarity between the description in Plato’s dialogues and the islands’ geography.

The Azores consist of nine volcanic islands, some of which are surrounded by deep canyons and bays, features that are similar to the description of Atlantis given by Plato.

In addition, the Azores have been the site of numerous archaeological discoveries that may point to a possible connection with Atlantis.

In the 1980s, several artifacts were discovered on one of the islands, including a bull statue, a symbol associated with Atlantis.

Archaeologists also uncovered a temple complex on the island, which experts believe may have been used by ancient civilizations.

Geological evidence also supports the theory that Atlantis was located near the Azores.

The islands are part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a massive submarine mountain range running down the Atlantic Ocean.

Why do some scholars finally believe Atlantis was founded in the Middle of the Desert?

The Blue Eye of the Sahara, also known as the Richat Structure or the Guelb er Richat, is a geological formation in the Sahara Desert that looks like a massive bullseye.

The formation stretches across approximately 14.6 miles vast region of the desert in the nation of Mauritania.

For centuries, only a few nomadic tribes in the area were aware of the formation.

It was photographed for the first time by the Gemini astronauts in the 1960s, who used it as a landmark to track the progress of their landing sequences.

Later, the Landsat satellite took additional images and provided information about the formation’s size, height, and extent.

Geologists initially thought the Eye of the Sahara was an impact crater formed when a space object collided with the surface.

However, long-term studies of the rocks inside the structure show that its origins are entirely Earth-based.

Tourists and geologists flock to the Eye of the Sahara to study the unique geological feature in person.

However, because the Eye is located in a sparsely inhabited region of the desert with very little water or rainfall, it is not under much threat from humans.

Reasons Why the Capital City of the Atlantis was in the Eye of the Sahara?

Plato and Solon were known to have integrity and were rarely challenged. Plato’s story of Atlantis is the only one that has ever been challenged.

Herodotus (484–425 BC) was an ancient Greek historian and geographer known for having written the Histories – a detailed account of the Greco-Persian Wars.

Reproduction from The World According to Herodotus BC 450. Atantis is located in the Northwestern side of Africa bellow the Mont Atlas.

He created a detailed inhabited world map placing Atlantis on the western Sahara Desert, south of Mount Atlas.

Herodotus’s map from 450 BC places Atlantis in the same place as the Eye.

Another map, Pomponius Mela, Rome’s first geographer, created a sophisticated map of the known world titled “Del Sito, Forma E Misvra Del Mondo” 2000 years ago (The Habitable World of Pomponius Mela). He was placing Atlantis in the exact location.

Atlantis was described as having impressive mountains to the north.

The massive mountain chain to the north is called the Atlas Mountains,, which were aptly named after the first known king of Mauritania, who shares the same name as the very first king of Atlantis, Atlas.

The first documented usage of the term “Atlantic” was in the sixth century BC by a Greek poet, Atlantikôi pelágei, or the “Sea of Atlas.”

The nearby mountains were revered as Gods’ representatives, with lush rivers and waterfalls. These mountains were said to be in the north, where the Eye’s mountains are. When you look at the satellite images of the Eye, you can see the river and water lines that appear throughout the landscape.

Plato described the sea to the south of Atlantis and the desert surrounding it, which can also be seen in satellite images.

The legend of Atlantis is based on ancient Egyptians, that claimed that they were colonists and the last survivors of a civilization that was destroyed in a cataclysm.

We learned about Atlantis and its precise location through their ancestors.

The diameter of the Capital City of Atlantis’ circular isle was described as 127 Stadia. 1 Stadia equals 607 feet. When you multiply 127 x 607, the result is 77,089 ft. This is approximately 14.6 miles – the diameter of the Eye.

Solon, Plato’s relative, was an Athenian statesman and poet who traveled to Egypt and learned about Atlantis first-hand. These are the stories that Solon told Plato.

In his Critias and Timaeus dialogues, Plato describes Atlantis as three alternating zones of water and two of land, which could easily be transposed onto the physical structure of the Eye that we know today.

It was said that fresh water flowed from Atlantis’ center island, which also exists in the Eye’s center circle.

Satellite imagery shows that weather pushed mud across the region, which could easily be attributed to a tsunami, one of many aspects of the weather system that destroyed Atlantis simultaneously.

Mauritania exports copper and gold, both of which were abundant throughout the Atlantean Empire.

Plato claimed that elephants and other animals were plentiful on Atlantis; many elephant bones have been discovered near the Eye.

Black, red, and lighter-colored rocks were said to be embedded throughout Atlantis. This also applies to the Eye.

Thousands of artifacts have been discovered in and around the Richat Structure. Most are 12,000 years old or older, putting them in the same time frame as Atlantis. Arrowheads, spears, stone spheres, surfboards, oars, ship hulls, and other items are among them.

The center of the city of Atlantis, described as being geothermal, was said to have been blessed with hot springs and freshwater springs, as defined by Plato.

A little-known study of the Rishad structure from the late 1990s describes it as a hydrothermal complex.

Hot springs are the very definition of a hydrothermal anomaly, and the fact that there is an actual scientific study corroborating this uniquely specific characteristic is remarkable.

Sahara was a lush green tropical landscape at the time of Atlantis. But between 8,000 and 4500 years ago, it transitioned from humid to dry, resulting in the Sahara Desert.

Considering that all of the areas in and around the wrist shot have concentrations of salt and are in the areas of the lowest elevation, it seems reasonable to conclude that seawater had once settled and evaporated there.

Richat Structure - This geologic feature has captured the attention of astronauts for about as long as NASA has sent humans into orbit around Earth.

What is your opinion, is the eye of the Sahara the most likely location for the lost capital of the City of Atlantis?
