HistoryEdit

The newspaper published its first issue on 17 January 1939,[1] in the middle of the Civil War, shortly after Tarragona was occupied by the Franquistas.[2] Their first director was Luis Climent, who held the position from 1939 to 1942.[3]

During the Dictatorship, the newspaper formed part of the Cadena de Prensa del Movimiento.[4][5] After Franco's death, they joined the public body Medios de Comunicación Social del Estado (MCSE). In 1984, they were auctioned off by the State and sold.[6][7] Following this, they changed their name to Diari de Tarragona.[5]
