Butrinti region is the part of the Cika anticlinal belt, which is the most western part of the Ionian zone. This region located in the most southern part of Albania, near the Greek border. From the tectonic point of view, it is the part of the Cika anticlinal belt, which is in the western part of the External Albanides. In the western side of this anticlinal belt developed one regional over thrust fault. Through this over thrust Cika anticlinal belt and all the Ionian zone over thrust in westward with amplitude around 50-100 km above the Apulian Platform (Sazani zone in Albania) and the South Adriatic basin. The most widespread formation there is: Evaporite (Upper Triassic), carbonate (Upper Triassic-Eocene), flysch (Oligocene-Aquitaniane), molasses (Serravalian-Pliocene) and Quaternary.
