this is the only list I found of Spanish saints.
so far 3 or maybe more, saints come from my ancient city of Seville/hispalis hahaha: one of them is Saint isidore of Seville.
Do they still venerate most of these Spanish saints.?

There is no simple answer to this question. In my experience most parish churches do not place a great emphasis on venerating ALL the saints everyday. What I mean is that Serbs are primarily going to remember Sveti Nikola, Sava, Simeon the Myrhh-gusher, and Tsar-Martyr Lazar/Kosovo Polje before Isidore of Seville if they even know who he is but parish churches are average people.
In terms of the Church ALL Spanish Saints you listed are venerated. Before Fr.Seraphim (Rose) died he was working on a book about the Orthodox Saints of Spain but unfortunately did not have the time to finish it. It would be better if there was more knowledge and appreciation of the Western Saints among Eastern Orthodox. Still I confess I seldom do more than read the names of most of the Saints listed everyday for commemoration.

The best sources listing western pre-schism saints are Fr Andrew Phillips' lists at the Orthodox England site (http://orthodoxengland.org.uk/zeurope.htm), and the St Herman's Calendar, published by the Brotherhood of St Herman, Platina, CA.

There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga
