An odd volcano shaped pyramid found in the 1960’s in Peru continues to baffle experts today.
Nicknamed ‘El Vulcan’ by the research team, astounding new finds may give an explanation of how it was formed, or if it was built in prehistoric times.
In this area of Peru, no other volcanoes are present. Lending credit to a possible man made structure.
Peru’s volcanoes belong to the subduction zone of the eastern Pacific’s Nazca Plate beneath South America all along the west coast of Peru. However, only in southern Peru there are active volcanoes.
The rest of the country’s cordillera belongs to a volcanically inactive gap, where the subduction is at such a shallow angle that magma is not generated by the process.
