An integrated structural and petrological study shows that exhumation of high-P rocks of the Rhodope occurred in several pulses. The structurally uppermost Kimi Complex recording an Early Cretaceous high-P metamorphism was exhumed between about 65 and >42 Ma. The Sidironero, Kardamos and Kechros Complexes that record Early Tertiary high-P metamorphism (at least 19 kbar at 700 °C) were exhumed at >42–30 Ma. Exhumation occurred with isothermal decompression. Strain episodes depict thrusting of medium/high grade above lower grade high-P rocks, syn-thrusting extension and post-thrusting extension. Polyphase extension created several generations of detachment zones, which, in sum,...
