Basque coast, Gipuzkoa Fossils trapped for over 50 million years in the pastry-puff rock formation — technically known as flysch — along a kilometer stretch of land on the western coast of Gipuzkoa have earned this place a spot in the European Geoparks Networks. This is a chaotic landscape filled with pits and sinkholes, karst formations such as the limestone pavement of Los Lanchares, the Bailón River Canyon and the Bat Cave, near Zuheros. It is a rocky place of jagged-peaked mountains that rise above the oak forests like dinosaur backbones.
To be sure I need to know where you found exactly this fossils, to ckeck with a geological map the age of the rocks. Greetings from Spain.

Sierras Subbéticas, Córdoba The collection of limestone massifs extending southeast of Córdoba province, along the border with Jaén and Granada, show the effect of water over the course of eons.

Its tracks, and those of other dinosaurs from the Jurassic and Cretaceous eras, are on display at nearly 70 paleontology sites inside the El Maestrazgo geopark. Many formations are for all practical purposes only studied at a single site, and may not even be named. Geological formations consist of rock that was deposited during a specific period of time. Such formations may be listed either without a site, with a site or sites that represent the type locality, or with multiple sites of note. Among the products of that geological process are the Toll and Salnitre caves, the serrated peaks of Montserrat pictured and the Catalan potassium basin. This is a chaotic landscape filled with pits and sinkholes, karst formations such as the limestone pavement of Los Lanchares, the Bailón River Canyon and the Bat Cave, near Zuheros. Cabo de Gata-Níjar, Almería Dating from 10 million years ago, the formations at Cabo de Gata on the Almería coast are one of the largest magma-derived mountains in Europe.
The core of the Iberian Peninsula consists of an Hercynian cratonic block known as the Iberian Massif. In between, visitors can find the Los Covachos cave, the Huéznar River waterfall, the fossilized jellyfish of Peña Escrita, and over , hectares of cork oak, holm oak and olive trees.

The western peninsula is delimited by the continental boundary formed by the magma poor opening of the Atlantic ocean. Geological formations consist of rock that was deposited during a specific period of time.
