Submerged megalithic ruins are reported from Tarifa to Huelva along the southern coast of Spain, west of Gibraltar (meaning fire altar), which was part of the Atlantean empire, the families of Sidon (Poseidon) and his sons Anteus (Andes) and Atlas (mountains), who built megalithic cities from the Gibraltar region, as far eastward as Libya and Sicily, and in the case of Anteus, apparently all the way across the Atlantic to the west (please refer to article #2 under http://IceAgeCivilizations.com) to his namesake the Andes of South America, where the ancient Antisuyos were of his progeny, and the ruins of some of their cities are now submerged off Bimini of the bahama banks and the Teneriffe islands as well.
And in addition to these and the sites all along the southern coast of Spain, there are submerged ruins on the continental shelf on the Moroccan side of the Straits of Gibraltar, anciently known as the Straits of Hercules (Nimrod/Melkart), so you can see that the Atlantean Empire, described by Plato, was quite accurate, he just was mistaken saying 9,000 years before Solon’s time while actually it was 9,000 lunar cycles before his time, a timeframe which legitimitizes the bronze age megalithic structures found off southern Spain.
In 100 feet of water, a few kilometers off the beach at Zahara de los Atunes, between Gibraltar and Cadiz, Spain, are megalithic atlantean ruins (which cover about half a kilometer square) photographed by Paco Salazar, which are included in my dvd documentary Atlantis: Secret Star Mappers of a Lost World, showing that there on the shallow seafloor are some of the atlantean ruins from the 2200 B.C. to 1500 B.C. timeframe, but which were inundated by the sea when the Ice Age ended, when sea level rose a few hundred feet to obliterate the port cities of the Bronze Age, as noted by Plato in his works Critaeus and Timaeus, when also, as noted by Plato, the climate drastically dried out in Greece, as many megalithic cites of Greece were submerged, such as those now found off Platygiali, Astakos, Abdera, and Elafonisi (Pavlopetri).
The earthquakes which rocked the ancient world circa 1500 B.C. were because of the isostatic readjustment of the earth’s crust which occured as the Ice Age icepacks melted into the sea, causing the earthquake which Plato said accompanied the inundation of Atlantis, which was a bronze age empire, with trireme ships, metallurgy, and sophicated masonry, proving that Plato should have said went under 9,000 lunar cycles before Solon’s time, not 9,000 solar cycles before his time, so when this is considered, the biblical timeframe fits this history, with the clouds of the Ice Age having been caused by warmer oceans in the aftermath of Noah’s Flood.
