Mauritius is a small island that lies in the Indian Ocean 800 km east of Madagascar. It is part of the Mascarene group of volcanic islands. An anonymous website, now offline, claimed the Mascarene Plateau as the location of Atlantis(a).
Leaving that silly speculation aside, what is of interest is that Mauritius is home to at least seven pyramids. “According to work undertaken by French researcher and writer Antoine Gigal,(b)none of the structures is taller than 12 metres, and each has between 6 and 11 evenly terraced steps, making them similar to other pyramids on the Mediterranean island of Sicily and the island of Tenerife off the western coast of Africa – islands which, like Mauritius, are also volcanic in origin.”
