Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I see.   Good for big national parties and regional parties. Bad for small and middling national parties without a regional concentration.
So in this case they will hope to get one in Madrid - big constituency and Valencia - traditional stronghold and hope if everything goes well to get another one in Barcelona.

Seems to rather discourage to build up a organization in, say, Galicia.

Galicia is big enough to have a regional party, the BNG. The real problem is that rural, and lowly populated, provinces have each two seats, and that means that only the two main parties have a stand in them. And they lean mostly to the right, so it is to be expected that they may give two diputados to the PP.
