From Serrinha, in Arneiro, to Monfortinho, extending to Spain, the Ponsul Fault is one of the most important active geological structures in the region.
Its escarpment, materialized by a gigantic step in the landscape, extends for more than 120 km. Its origin dates back about 300 million years ago, when all continents came together and collided to form the supercontinent to Pangea.
The step that separates the Surface of Castelo Branco and the Surface of the Alto Alentejo originated only 10 million years ago, during the collision between continents, responsible for the formation of the Alps.
