Diário de Notícias is a Portuguese daily newspaper published in Lisbon, Portugal.

History and profile[edit]

Diário de Notícias was first published in Lisbon in 1864[1] by Tomás Quintino Antunes and Eduardo Coelho. It gradually became one of the best known Portuguese newspapers. Nowadays, Diário de Notícias, along with Jornal de Notícias, is owned by Controlinveste.

During the 1880s the novelist Eça de Queiroz, then stationed in England in the Portuguese diplomatic service, contributed occasional "London letters" to the newspaper. Some of these were afterwards published in book form as the Cartas de Inglaterra.

Music critic Joaquim Seabra Pessoa, best known for being Fernando Pessoa's father, also worked for Diário de Notícias.

In the period of 1995–1996 Diário de Notícias had a circulation of 63,000 copies, making it the second best-selling paper in the country.[2] The circulation of the paper was 44,055 copies in 2002, 44,903 copies in 2003 and 45,015 copies in 2004.[3] The circulation of the paper was 37,992 copies in 2005, 37,904 copies in 2006 and 37,759 copies in 2007.[3] It was 34,119 copies in 2011.[4]
