I am not very sure about that but I also heard that if you get a visa to go to France, then the first country you have to enter is France (then you can move around all the Schengen countries)

But, as said, not fully sure. So, you should ask the Embassy; they are the ones to give you the official answer.

The rule of the first enter is related to the boarding countries. If any questions occur, you can say that you visit Spain for two days and than go to France for 5 for example. They can't check it anyway. So you can freely choose both visas. But I agree with the previous post. Spanish visa is easier.
The information is approved, because I work in the field.

for me it's not easier , the list of documents they require is unbelievable , france is easier ,
