This paper is mainly concerned with the processes involved in the transformation of a basin from endorheic to exorheic as a result of fluvial piracy in an area of southeast Spain. The analytical method applied consisted in comparison of the drainage network occupying the region during the subsidence and post-inversion stages. The AA. show how the differences between the 2 stages as regards stream location, fluvial styles and flow directions and the overall evolution of the hydrographic network provide informations on the processes controlling basin inversion and the appearance of some features, such as fluvial superimposition
