Presumably a member of Lycosidae, maybe genus Lycosa?

Yes i agree that it is a wolf spider. I had a quick google and u have 3 lycosa wolf spiders in Spain and they are all quite large.. about 20 to 30 mm (body size alone excluding the legs). My guess would be a little pardosa wolf spider….but tis onlyna guess.

Sorry i wasnt clear in my answer. I think it is too small to be a in the genus lycosa…
it might be a much smaller wolf in the genus pardosa.
They hold their heads quite high and they tend to stand with their relatively long thin back legs straight behind them. I am from ireland though and we dont have as many spider species as you have in Spain. It could be a different species that i am unfamiliar with.

They are very hard to identify to species level without a microscope. Different individuals in the same species look totally different.
