It is believed that Madeira is temporarily dormant. Although low, the risk of a volcanic eruption in Madeira is not non-existent.

There's been an upsurge in Spanish interest and claims of discovery


"What if the mythical Atlantis was off the coast of Barbate? This is the theory that supports the expert Georgeos Díaz-Montexano, who accompanied by a team of almost forty people of different nationalities, these days looking for the ruins of the legendary city for the filming of a documentary produced by National Geographic.

This premise is based on a video filmed in the area by the Cadiz submariner Francisco Salazar ‘el Pantera’ in 1993, in which the submerged ruins of an ancient civilization could be seen, according to the experts who made the documentary. However, at the time the images were taken by fishing pens by the archaeological community."
