The map shows the twenty clubs in the current season of the Spanish La Liga [2021-22].
The map features the locations and crests of the 20 current La Liga clubs. Plus, the recently-promoted and -relegated teams are noted. (Promoted in 2021: Espanyol, Mallorca, Rayo Vallecano; relegated in 2021: Eibar, Valladolid, Huesca).

The 17 Autonomous Communities of Spain are shown {Autonomous communities of Spain} (en.wikipedia.org).

Also shown on the map are the 20 largest Spanish metropolitan areas.
{source: Largest metropolitan areas in Spain (2018 European Spatial Planning Observation Network figures) (en.wikipedia.org)}. Those 20 largest Spanish metro-areas, with their 2018 population estimates, are listed at the top-centre of the map-page.

On the main map of Mainland Spain and on the inset-map showing the Canary Islands, those 20 metro-areas are shown via circles which denote the city-centre. In some cases, there is more than one city-centre for the metro-area (as with Oviedo–Gijón–Avilés up in the north of Spain; and as with both Murcia–Orihuela and with Alicante–Elche in the south of Spain).

There are two charts on the right-hand side of the map page .
One chart shows Seasons-in-1st-Division [current clubs]. (2021-22 is the 91st season of La Liga.) The second chart is the All-time Spanish professional titles list (1929 to 2020-21).

Currently [17 January 2022], after 20 or 21 matches, and with ~52-to-55% of the 2021-22 season played, Real Madrid leads the league by 5 points over Sevilla, although Sevilla has one game in hand. Third place is Real Betis, stuck 15 points behind Real Madrid, so it looks like only Sevilla has a chance to catch los Blancos (the Whites).

If the season were ended right now, the four Champions League spots would go to Real Madrid, Sevilla, Betis, and reigning champions Atlético Madrid. The remaining lower-tier-European places would go to the current #5 and #6-place teams: Real Sociedad and the still-imploding Barcelona.

There are several others who could challenge for a spot in Europe next season, including recently-promoted dark-horses Rayo Vallecano (of Vallecas, a working-class neighborhood on the south-east side of Madrid). Current relegation-zone dwellers are: Alavés, Cádiz, and Levante.
