What is Atlantis?

Atlantis is a part of a story by Plato which describes various forms of government. In describing his ideal form of government in a theoretical Ancient Athens, Plato mentions that it would be appropriate in his story for ancient Athens to have defeated some worthy enemy in war, and in describing a suitable enemy, he proposes to use a story which he says was originally brought from Egypt. That was the story of Atlantis, an island larger than Libya and Asia combined which lay in the Atlantic Ocean opposite the Pillars of Hercules, but which supposedly disappeared into the sea in a day and night of earthquakes and floods.

The Question is This:

Is any part of Plato's description of Atlantis true, or was it entirely made up?
Does any of it match a real place?
Let's see.



¿Qué es La Atlántida?

La Atlántida forma parte de una historia escrita por Platón que describe distintas formas de gobierno. Al describir su forma ideal de gobierno en el marco de una teórica antigua Atenas, Platón menciona que convenía en su historia que la antigua Atenas venciera a un fuerte enemigo militarmente, y al describir un enemigo de peso, propone una historia de la que dice que fue traída originalmente de Egipto. Esa es la historia de La Atlántida, nombre de una isla mayor que Libia y Asia juntas que estaba en el oceáno Atlántico frente a las Columnas de Hercules, pero que habría desaparecido en el mar en un día y una noche de temblores e inundaciones.

La Pregunta es:

¿Parte de la descripción de La Atlántica de Platón es cierta, o podría ser que la hubiese inventado en su totalidad?
¿Parte de ella corresponde a un lugar real?
Veamos.
