Hi Javier

 

general geographical thesaurus type projects you might be interested in
are:

 

-  Alexandria Digital Library which has emphasised geographic metadata
in their digital library, has a geographic feature type thesaurus, a
gazetteer with server and metadata for various types of footprint, has
some coverage of Spain and its regions. Linda Hill has various
publications on it.
