El Periódico de Catalunya is a daily newspaper based in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It was founded in 1978 to offer a progressive Catalan paper connected to Catalan socialism. Today El Periódico is owned by Grupo Zeta. It is regarded as an easy read as compared to its competitors and it’s quite popular among working-class people. Following the example of USA Today, El Periódico later began to emphasise graphics and the use of color. Today, it prints every page in colour and makes a great use of visuals elements. The paper publishes separate daily editions in Spanish and in Catalan and is the second highest-circulated newspaper in Spain's Catalan speaking regions. Nationally, El Periódico is Spain's fifth-highest circulation general-interest daily.
