Abstract

We describe and study structural evidences concerning to Alpine tectonics at NE sector o f the Spanish Central System (SCS). In Valdesotos area, the Hercynian basement is uplifted over Mesozoic sediments, throughout a main SW verging thrust. Fault population analysis and geological mapping has been used to look at the relation between structures in the basement and in the cover. As a consequence of accommodation of strains in the basement, kink folds are developed, such as secondary thrust and folds in the tegument. All these meso- and macrostructures seem to answer to a shortening in agreement with the Cenozoic deformation.
