Read all about it! Top Spanish Language Newspapers in Spain.

Looking for a way to practice your Spanish language outside of the classroom and increase your Spanish culture knowledge. One great way to do this is to read Spanish newspapers. They are cheap and will keep you up to date with current events. You don’t have to worry if your Spanish course has now come to an end and you are no longer in Spain as most of the major Spanish newspapers have an online version, or you can even download the app for your iPhone.

As in most countries, there are a number of popular newspapers in Spain and I want to briefly introduce you to the most widely read. Which newspaper would you chose to read?…

El Pais
First published in 1976, El Pais is a national newspaper that is produced on a daily basis. It is  owned by the Spanish media conglomerate PRISA . The paper’s ideology has always been defined by its pro-European stance and is politically to the left.

El Mundo
This daily newspaper is the second largest printed newspaper (after El Pais) and the largest digital newspaper in Spain. It was first published in 1989 and many would say expresses the political and mainstream views of the Spanish right with more independent and liberal tones.

In Spain, although the national newspapers are overall the most sold in Spain, in each city it is often the local newspaper that sells best. For each of our cities, our schools have recommended I suggest these newspapers for you to read the local news…

Barcelona – La Vanguardia
La Vanguardia is a daily newspaper for the Barcelona community which covers local news, sports, business, jobs, and events.

Madrid – ABC
ABC, which began publishing in 1903, is a daily newspaper in Madrid covering both local and national news.

Valencia – Levante
Levante EMV began publication in 1872 and covers local news, local sports, jobs and community events.

Sevilla – El Diario de Sevilla
This is a very new publication, beginning only in 1999, that provides the Sevilla community with local news, sports job opportunities and classifieds.

Happy Reading!
