Brazil's Sociedade de Estudos Extraterrestres (SOCEX) is currently investigating a flurry of reports of strange tunnels in the mountains of Santa Catarina and Parana states. The "tunnel sightings" are concentrated around the city of Joinvile in Santa Catarina state, about 304 kilometers (190 miles) southwest of Sao Paulo.
According to Eustaquio Andrea Patounas of SOCEX, "Recently two explorers entered a tunnel near Ponta Grossa (a city in Parana state 400 kilometers or 250 miles southwest of Sao Paulo--J.T.), and they spent five days in a subterranean city of more or less 50 inhabitants." During their "tour," the unnamed Brazilians were provided with fruits grown hydroponically underground "by the city's chief, who said they took two years to produce."
The two men also claimed to have "entered a tunnel in Rincano," in the Serra da Paranapiacaba mountains "in the state of Parana and discovered a staircase underground" leading to four different levels.
In another case, a man identified as "J.D., a guide for Montanha Misterioso in Joinvile, S.C.said that many times luminous flying saucers have been seen around the opening of the tunnel, and that he had heard a chorus of men and women singing underground" near the site. "He said that the discs are so bright that they converted darkest night to the luminosity of day. On this occasion, he encountered a group of strange subterraneans who were near the tunnel. They were white, of red beard and long hair, very muscular. When he approached them, they fled. Other times he has seen strange lights in this area which are probably related to the flying saucers."
An elderly man in JoinvilLe also claims to have seen subterraneans dressed like the barbarians on Xena, Warrior Princess. "He stated that he visited a strange tunnel near Conceiacao in the state of Sao Paulo and saw at a distance a marvelous underground city." "An explorer named N.C. said he had visited a tunnel in Rio Castor and encountered a beautiful young woman who did not appear more than 20 years old. She spoke to him in Portuguese and said she was 2,500 years old. He also said he had met with those barbarous subterranean men."
"Another explorer named D.O. encountered a similar tunnel in Gaspar, S.C.," in the Serra do Mar mountains, "and sampled a mysterious fruit from an orchid." He also claimed to have seen subterraneans "talking to each other in high-pitched voices in an unknown language."
