La Vanguardia

Established in 1881, La Vanguardia is one of Spain's oldest papers. During the Spanish Civil War it became the mouthpiece of the Republicans and for that reason suffered more than other newspapers under the censorship of Franco's dictatorship. Since 2011 the paper's entire content is also published in Catalan. In today's Catalonia it represents a moderate regionalism.
