Which one is the prestige dialect in Spanish?

Not seeing why the question should be restricted to Spanish. Counterexamples not mentioned so far:

  • Bulgarian: Varna, not Sofia.
  • Macedonian: Ohrid, not Skopje.
  • Germany: Saxony, not Berlin or Vienna. (And in the Middle Ages, Swabia, not Saxony.)
  • Greek: Koine, but basically Peloponnesian, not Old Athenian.
