I'm from Spain, I live in Madrid but I have travelled a lot around my country.
I wouldn't spend so many hours of travelling to get to Alicante. It's a nice place, that's true, but it's more for families that want to stay in the beach for a week or so, it hasn't got much to see, so I think it's not worth the effort.
I would rather go to Valencia, it's a nice place, and has far more things to do than in Alicante.
Your must visit cities are really ok, Barcelona is such a marvellous place, it's really nice to walk in its streets. Of course, I recommend you to visit Madrid, it's a very alive city, with lots of things to visit and an incredible night life; but let me advertise you, almost all the city is beign repaired, so don't be surprised if it takes you 1 hour to reach a place which is only 20 minutes ahead. Sevilla is also nice, with a lot of arabic elements; and Malaga is also ok, but I recommend you to reserve really soon your acommodation, because there's a lot of demand for the summer season.
I don't know how many time you're planning to spend in Spain, but I would also visit Granada, which is a very nice place, with a lot of places to visit, young people and a good night life. And I would also take a look at Cordoba, specially to the mosque.
All right, so if you need any other information or anything, just ask!
