The geology of the Rhodope region of northern Greece consists of crystalline basement rocks of the Rhodope Massif in which Tertiary extensional basins and granitic intrusions of Oligocene age occur widely.

Geophysical modelling has highlighted the close spatial relationship of the Tertiary sedimentary basins and post-tectonic granites of closely similar age. Geochemical data for selected granites are used to support the suggestion that there is a close genetic relationship between the episode of granite intrusion and the tectonic development of extensional basins.
