OK, everyone has their own theories as to the location of the lost city, but i will tell you something that i read in a british newspaper about a year ago
there is this french guy (absolutly CANNOT remember his name, and its bugging me) who is obsessed with atlantis and knows Plato's writings better than Plato.
anyway in this article he said that Plato says that atlantis was beyond the pillars of hercules (I think it was herc) which is gibralter. so the french guy says that everyone has all these theories about barbados, the Canary islands etc. but nobody has actually checked just past the pillars, and he said that there is a subaquatic mountain just past gibralter that could have once been a island
if anyone else has any ideas as to the location please tell, its an interesting subject
