In terms of social conservatism especially, which cities in Spain are most right-wing? Which are most left-wing?

it depends where you are coming from...

if coming from the USA, for example, even the most conservative city in Spain would look like the most liberal in the USA, so go figure...

If we consider which political party some cities elect for local government, some cities like Valladolid, Pamplona and in general many in the North-Western half of the country (Castilla y Leon and Galicia regions) have chosen the most PP/conservative equivalent majors. But it doesn't give you the whole picture... For example in Andalusian cities in the South there has been a mix of communist, socialist and conservative parties elected, with a historical preference for socialist party, but still it is one region with more religion affiliation than others...

I would say that in general big cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Malaga, etc are pretty liberal in general.
Cordoba for example has been electing majority of Communist majors since the beginning of the democracy after Franco dictatorship, but now they have a socialist major... But even so I would say Madrid or Barcelona are more liberal than Cordoba.

Let's leave politics aside.
Most redneck cities, valladolid, salamanca, albacete, avila-- inland cities.
pamplona, rioja, influence of OPUS, carlismo, requetes whuch is more historical than anything else.
Socialist are basically ignorant and poorly educated rednecks that want to be modernos, ceñios y hecho en los estaos unidos, digusting.
PP are the conservative people that also want to be modernos and not carcas or garrulos, but are as garrulos as socialist but with more money.
Ciudadanos, want to be modern. liberal, they show more common sense but they hve an advantage, never been in power, the equivalent of afrancesados or frenchified in a country ruled by the inquisition.

What it means for you is to be liberal.-?

1)To be more or less rreligious
2)Be more or less patriotic.
3)Be more or less a supporter of State interventionism

etc etc etc etc

A)The word liberal in many cases in Spain means the opposite of its meaning in the USA,
B)The Spanish cities have a very similar ideology,except in the regions of Catalonia
and Basque Country where there is a very important separatist nationalist sector .-

Liberal, in an economic sense, laissez-faire, Adam Smith.
Is Spain, the left considers liberals as "fascist".
Now, to be a liberal in Spanish common parlance is not to be a redneck, a cateto. There are right and left catetos.

Religious, Spain is not religious except for a minority.
Patriotism is considered bad taste for many, except for catetos, yahoos.
State intervention...a little bit complicated as there are 18 countries in Spain.
