We set off from the information panel and walk on along the beach and the cliff. Approximately 120 m ahead of us lie several three-toed bipedal footprints appear on the surface of a grey stratum (about 45º inclined) of the Tereñes Formation and some of them make up a trackway.
About 480 m further on we find another three-toed dinosaur footprint, forming a natural cast on the base of an eaves-shaped sandstone projection which protrudes a few meters higher above. We are now within the Vega Formation, of fluvial origin.
On the cliff at the west end of Tereñes, a few metres beyond the breakwater in the port, we can observe a magnificent example of a vertical fault. The fault lies within an alternating succession of sandstones, mudstones and marls belonging to the Lastres Formation. A few metres ahead we notice several examples of vertical root traces, surrounded by a pale green halo against a reddish rock background. These structures represent Jurassic fossil soils.
