El País

Daily newspaper


El País is Spain's most widely read and internationally recognised paid newspaper. Its first edition was published shortly after the death of military dictator Francisco Franco. This centre-left daily provides comprehensive coverage of European and international issues. It takes a sceptical to hostile view of the left-wing party Podemos and the separatist movement in Catalonia. It wasn't until 2020 that El País introduced a paywall for the print content published online.
