Warm, transparent waters and mollusks,… This would be the appearance of this beach in the past, like a tropical sea advancing over the continent and revealing the clues of three levels of fossil beaches that we can differentiate, like layers of an onion, separated by erosive surfaces generated during the lowering of the sea level in the coldest periods.

One of the witnesses of this tropical sea was the marine snail Strombus bubonius, present in the fossil beaches, which came from the Atlantic coasts of Equatorial Africa in warmer times of our planet.

This natural process of climate change differs from the current one because it is the human being who is generating its intensification and acceleration, causing extreme weather events of greater frequency and severity.

An example of this is the "Pocico". A water catchment structure of the subsoil that has been exposed by the severe erosive action of the torrential waters that flow through the Rambla de las Amoladeras.
