The tectonic activity in the south-western area of the
Spanish Northern Meseta (Ciudad Rodrigo and Duero basins)
during most of the Tertiary was determined by u transpressive
regime that reactivated Hercynian to Late-Hercynian faults. The
record of the Alpine Orogeny is complex because the sedimentary
record indicates a compresive regime in the sour e areas coeval
with the extensionall to transpresive regime indicated by normal or
strike-slip faults. This duality is due 10 the geotectonics position of
this area between two compressive areas, the Cantabrian Range
and the Central System, and the extensional Atlantic margin.
