The French pyramid that no longer exists: Saint André de la Roche

6

When you think of France, a pyramid is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. At most, you might recall the modern glass pyramid at the Louvre Museum. Typically, when we think of pyramids, we think of Egypt. However, pyramids exist all over the world, some more hidden and lesser-known than others, remnants of a history many are reluctant to rediscover. For instance, there are numerous online sources that mention a supposed pyramid in France: the pyramid of Saint André de la Roche.

Let's explore what this is all about.

On the search of our ancestors

The academic narrative we are taught from an early age is that the "Mesopotamia" was the cradle of civilization. Following this, the Egyptian civilization emerged in all its splendor, fully developed in cultural, religious, political, and artistic aspects. Meanwhile, European populations were depicted as little more than barbarians, with the Roman Empire being credited with bringing order, justice, and civilization.

Today, we know how inaccurate this narrative is. Far from being mere "barbarians," the populations of Northern Europe had ancient and profound cultures, customs, and traditions. Much of this heritage was either destroyed or assimilated by subsequent cultures, leading to its eventual erasure and obscurity. Europe, too, had impressive constructions: the Bosnian pyramids, which mainstream science and archaeology continue to deny, stand as a clear testament to this.

Moreover, undeniable evidence exists, as demonstrated by photos available on the site http://www.eco-spirituality.org/. This site is managed by the Ecospirituality Foundation, which advocates for the protection and preservation of the traditions of "native peoples." Their mission is to safeguard the original memory of the Earth, which has been tainted and concealed by the conquerors' narratives, imposing their perspectives and modes on pre-existing and primordial histories.

Saint André de la Roche is located near Nice, in the French Riviera region. Until the 1950s, this small village was home to a pyramid, photographs of which are documented by the Ecospirituality Foundation. These photos serve as undeniable evidence, especially since one of them appears in a municipal brochure describing the structure as an "archaeological site" called Mèrindol.

The photographs depict a large stepped pyramid, reminiscent of the Pyramid of Djoser in Egypt or those found in South America. Its dimensions were about 50 meters high and 200 meters long. One photo shows that the pyramid was used as a quarry for construction materials at some point, evidenced by a road encircling it. In the 1950s, however, the pyramid was completely demolished to make way for a motorway junction ramp. Today, there is no trace of this ancient structure, as if it never existed.

This raises uncomfortable questions about the potential marvels the pyramid could have housed. According to sources, it is believed to have been constructed around 4,000 BC.

A hidden story

We know little else about this pyramid. We can only speculate about its builders. Given its ancient origins, some suggest it could have been the Pelasgians, the mysterious "sea peoples" who invaded the Mediterranean basin at one point. Could it be linked to Atlantis? The connection seems plausible. What is certain is that the destruction of such an important artifact is truly tragic. All that remains are a few photographs and the accounts of authors like Bonaventure Salvetti and Henri Broch.

Was the pyramid a temple, or was it inhabited by high-ranking dignitaries? We have no idea, nor do we have evidence of any studies conducted on the site before its destruction. Some believe the pyramid of Saint André de la Roche was part of a larger network of European pyramids.

The French pyramid was constructed from dry stone blocks. It is commonly believed that some ancient pyramids were built entirely from scratch, while others were modified from pre-existing mountain peaks. This is the case with the pyramids in Japan and likely the European ones as well. The pyramid shape is known to have significant conductive power. Why there is so much resistance to learning more about these structures remains a mystery.

Searching online I managed to find some more images. It doesn't look like an artificial structure. instead it seems that someone has sculpted the sides of a mountain and created terraces

This is a picture of the Paillon valley from 1930. The pyramid is visible on the right side.

Thank you very much for the additional pictures 😀 I agree. It doesn't look like a real pyramid, at least not like the Egyptian ones. It seems to be the terminal part of a mountain relief. This does not mean that it cannot be (was!) very ancient ...
