La Vanguardia

La Vanguardia ("The Avant-Garde") was founded in 1881 in Barcelona by the Godó family, which remains the owners. This Berlin-format daily is Spain's fourth newspaper in terms of circulation, but number one in Catalonia, just ahead of El Periódico de Catalunya. Moderate and open-minded, La Vanguardia enjoys good relations with both the regional Catalan government and with Madrid. It is published in Castillian with some content in Catalan, while its competitor El Periódico de Catalunya has appeared in two edition – Castillian and Catalan, since 1997.
