Abstract

Several washover fans breaking through the spit of Valdelagrana existing in middle 18th Century in the
Cuadalete estuary (Bay of Cadiz) are interpreted as the trace of the exceptional tsunami generated by the
AD 1755 Lisbon earthquake, based on geological, morphological and historical arguments.
