So, DaveRL got the correct town, Duruelo de la Sierra, the town near the start of the Douro river, and Doggett got the first link correct, the Douro river (without which there would be no Douro valley, no port wine and hence no port fora).
What is the second link between Oporto and Duruelo de la Sierra?

He he, no it is not.

Due to an engagement with a surgeon tomorrow, I will be away for some time.
The answer will be posted early tomorrow morning, if no correct answer by then.
DaveRL and Doggett will then have to fight it out for who is to post a new question.

Correct second link makes it two out of three for DaveRL, who will make the next quiz.

Slight delay. I was casting around for a suitable subject. I'm reading an account of a significant military battle. It is named after its location. What is the name?

Involved Navy and Marines, didn't involve British. Think this century and Pacific.

Really? A naval battle since 2000? (or 1999 for those who care)
