Diario de Navarra (also called El Diario de Navarra; meaning Navarra Daily in English) is a Spanish language regional newspaper based in Pamplona, Spain.

History and profile

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 the editorial stance of 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]
