All good destinations. I note the omission of Cordoba and the fact that you'll have just two full days for Barcelona's sights since you're going to take a side-trip to Girona (which is very worthwhile). Depending on how many of Barcelona's most popular sights you want to go inside, you may find it very difficult to schedule things (most tickets being timed). I normally recommend at least four days in Barcelona itself. In addition, two full days in Seville is one day short of what I'd want.

Not only is there more to see in Galicia than just Santiago de Compostela, but there are a lot of interesting places between Galicia and the Basque Country. I'd consider postponing Santiago de Compostela till a later trip in order to reduce the travel time this year and provide a few extra days in Barcelona, Seville and perhaps Madrid (for a side-trip to Segovia). Actually, there are some additional places you'd probably enjoy in the Basque Country as well.
