[~email@example.com] has mentioned making redirects/aliases for every old portal page is simply unmaintainable ( see http://dev.gbif.org/issues/browse/POR-1405?focusedCommentId=16613&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-16613 ). Therefore, I'm closing this issue as won't fix.
It might prove more sensible to migrate GBIF Spain to use the new URLs instead.
