History and profileEdit

Headquarters of the paper

Diario de Navarra was established by five local families in 1903.[1] The paper has its headquarters in Pamplona.[2][3] It is part of the company, Grupo La Información, owned by founding families.[1][4] The publisher is also the same company.[4]

In the late 1970s Diario de Navarra supported the view that the province of Navarre should remain part of Spain and be independent of Euskadi.[5] On 22 August 1979 ETA attempted to assassinate the editor of the paper, José Javier Uranga, allegedly due to this support.[5] On the other hand, the paper has a neutral political stance.[6]


Diario de Navarra sold 63,312 copies in 1993.[7][8] The paper had the highest level of readership in the Navarre province in 2001.[6] It was the 13th best selling newspaper in Spain in 2003.[2] In the period of 2009-2010 the paper sold 49,065 copies.[9] The circulation of the paper was 44,000 copies in 2011.[10]
