Best websites for following Spanish news…

You would have thought that by living in Sevilla, I’d have a pretty updated and expansive knowledge of exatly what’s going on in the country, sadly I don’t. Thanks to my 4pm start time and 10pm finish time, it’s quite tricky to fit in the 3pm and 9pm news bulletins on the TV.  So, after 11 years in the country, I’ve decided to pay more attention and have started following the news more. I normally do it in Spanish, just to improve my vocabulary and reading skills, but now and then I feel lazy and want to quickly scan the headlines, which is why I’ve come up with this list of websites to keep updated with Spanish news. Here they are, in no particular order.

The Local

This is ‘Spain’s news in English’ which is exactly what I’m looking for. The Local has interesting news, sport, and lifestyle articles, plus a few on ‘life in Spain’.

El Pais, in English

El Pais (The Country) is a popular broadsheet style newspaper in Spain.

Typically Spanish

This website is not only about news, but also has great tips on things to do and links to hotels.

Think Spain

This is an excellent site for up-to-date news, features, and general information about Spain.

On the Pulse

Not sure exactly how ‘on the pulse’ these guys are as the last articles were in October 2016, but might be worth checking out in case they do come back.

Spanish News Today

This one is slightly more updated. Check it out for news on weather, politics, sports, and both national and international news.

The Olive Press

I used to read this in the printed form back in the day. Now it looks as though the website has been revamped. Check it out for news on Andalucia, Gibraltar, Sports, and various other news.

The Guardian, Spain and The Telegraph, Spain

Those don’t need much explaining.

Online Newspaper, Spain

Indeed, as the slogan states ‘Thousands of world newspapers at your fingertips’

And finally (until I find some more, or you’d like to add any below)

Euro Weekly News

This is Spain’s largest free local newspaper in English, and has loads of categories including Sport, lifestyle, finance, property, plus more.

That’s all for now, happy reading!
