La Gaceta is a daily newspaper founded in Tucumán, Argentina, and the most prominent in the Argentine Northwest.

La Gaceta was established on August 4, 1912, by Alberto García Hamilton, an Uruguayan publisher who left for neighboring Argentina following a political dispute. La Gaceta earned a reputation for conservatism, and was opposed to populist leader Hipólito Yrigoyen during the 1920s, as well as to the pro-development administration of Arturo Frondizi, who had the paper censored in 1960.[1]

The daily has historically been among the most modern in the region, being the first in South America to use offset printing, and the first to be fully computerized.[1] It is currently the largest and most influential newspaper in Tucumán Province, and is considered to be one of the main dailies in the country, outside Buenos Aires. In 1995, the daily's design was renewed and color was incorporated. As a result, La Gaceta has been awarded several international prizes ever since.

Gacenet, La Gaceta's online edition, was created in 1999.
