This is a great quiz. A good mixture of the straightforward and the challenging. One correction: "Douro" is the Portuguese name for the river. The Spanish name is "Duero" as in the town "Aranda de Duero"

Douro is also the commonly used name in English (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douro), so it's the one that should be used in an test written in English.

Another nice map!

Although you seemed to have forgotten the Anglo-Spanish border at Gibraltar

Good quiz!

But:

- "Don Quijote" (Spanish spelling) should be a type-in for "Don Quixote"

- "Duero" (Spanish name for the river) should be a type-in for "Douro" (this one, which is often used in English, is the Portuguese name)

- "Gernika" should be also accepted for "Guernica", since it's the name of a town in the Basque Country, and the first is the basque name while the second is the Spanish name

You should consider translating this quiz into Spanish! It would be a great addition to the Spanish section of JetPunk and would likely be featured.

If you need any help translating, just let me know.

The answer column says "montain ranges" instead of "mountain ranges"
