Hi Juan - 

I had found your message yesterday and didn't get a chance to respond.
But I see that you've gotten lots of responses now - but perhaps not
the type you were hoping for (sorry your got so much flaming!)

Your plant is clearly an Alocasia, a tropical Aroid.  I'm not sure
which species (possibly one like or with an affinity to A. odorata).
I've learned about these plants from the Aroid-L e-mail discussion
group, and I'm experimenting with growing a few out of doors here in
the Mediterranean climate of California's San Francisco Bay Area.
What part of Spain do you garden?  What are your interests?
