The suspect, a Moroccan national named locally as Fath Allah Benhachem Grarrass, was arrested following a raid in the Catalan city of Girona.
He is alleged to have tried to get hold of weapons to carry out a potential attack in Benidorm, a judge remanding him in prison on Friday said.
Reports claim he was planning to film his evil machine gun attack and post footage of it on social media networks run by ISIS, or Islamic State.
He is also said to have looked up how to make a peroxide based-explosive known as Mother of Satan on the Dark Web.
The material, also known as TATP, was previously used by ISIS terrorists in the deadly 2018 attacks in Barcelona’s Las Ramblas and nearby Cambrils.
Spanish Interior Ministry Sources claimed Grarrass regularly watched videos of Islamist extremist attacks in Europe to “improve his technique”.
One video of a stabbing on a train he allegedly watched 18 times.
