The Ceara Central Domain of the Borborema Province is a key tectonic domain within the 5000 km-long West Gondwana Orogen, which extends from Algeria in Africa to Central Brazil. Igneous rocks of the Tamboril-Santa Quiteria Complex, investigated in this study, record a long-lived history of convergent magmatism and crustal anatexis. SHRIMP U-Pb dating and Hf-0 isotope analyses of zircons from granitoids and migmatites, coupled with whole-rock Sr-Nd isotopes were used to constrain the evolution of this long-lived continental margin. Magmatism can be divided into three main periods: i) an early period comprising essentially juvenile arc magmatism at ca. 880-800 Ma and continuing to 650 Ma as evidenced indirectly by detrital zircons from syn-orogenic deposits, ii) a more mature arc period at ca. 660-630 Ma characterized by hybrid mantle-crustal magmatic rocks, and iii) crustal anatexis at 625-618 Ma continuing until ca. 600 Ma. Detrital zircons with mantle values of 8018 (<5.7%.) in the range of 950 to 650 Ma retrieved from fore-arc deposits indicate that juvenile input persisted throughout the evolution of the convergent magmatism. Juvenile and mature arc igneous rocks underwent anatexis that gave rise to extensive areas of diatexites within the complex. Anatexis overlap in time with the ages of (ultra)-high pressure (U)HP eclogitic metamorphism dated at 625-615 Ma. In accordance with other continental collision zones, age of UHP/HP metamorphism is interpreted to mark the timing of continental collision and therefore indicate that the anatexis of arc rocks took place during continental subduction in a continent-continent collisional setting. Extensive migmatization continued until ca. 600 Ma and are in part synchronous to the exhumation of the rocks to shallower crustal levels. Thus, the 350 m.y. of magmatic activity in the Ceara Central Domain records the evolution of the West Gondwana margin of the Borborema Province from a juvenile arc setting through a mature arc and continental collision at around 625-600 Ma.
