The existence of a major extensional fault in Sierra Tejeda, Central Betics, developed during the middle Miocene, is evidenced. The Tejeda, Venta de Palma, Bentomiz and Alcaiceria units make up the hanging-wall o f the fault. These units are tilted tow ard the N and NE. The collapse of the thinned crust of Alboran Domain is related with extensional origin of the contacts between units.
