History and profile
La Gaceta once belonged to Negocios de Ediciones y Publicaciones SL group until August 2009 when it was bought by Intereconomia Group. Its headquarters is in Madrid and it has branches in Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia, and Valladolid.
Conservative and economically liberal, La Gaceta positions itself as the leading representative of Spanish conservatism and traditionalism and regards other centre-right newspapers as left-leaning, especially El Mundo. It has taken strong stances against abortion and same-sex marriage and has heavily criticized the Socialist government of 2004-2011.
