This is a list of the largest metropolitan areas in Spain by population.

Estimates are from the following sources:

  • the "Functional Urban Areas" (FUAs) of the Study on Urban Functions of the European Spatial Planning Observation Network (ESPON, 2007)[1]
  • the "Larger Urban Zone" (LUZs)[2] of Urban Audit project (2004), supported by the European Union.[3] Not all cities were included in this survey.[3]
  • calculations by Francisco Ruiz from data of the Instituto Nacional de Estadística (2008 estimates).[4] As well as "metropolitan area" data,[5] Ruiz has produced larger "conurbation" data for some areas.[6] The "conurbation" figure is used where available, and is cited as such; otherwise, the "metropolitan area" figure is used.

The figures differ between the reports due to the difference in survey dates and differences in methodology. For example, ESPON considers OviedoGijónAvilés as a single FUA, while Urban Audit has separate LUZs for Oviedo and Gijón. Similarly, Vilanova i la Geltrú is included in Barcelona metropolitan area by ESPON, but as a separate conurbation by Ruiz.
