A Capital (meaning The Capital [City] in English) was a Portuguese afternoon newspaper published in Lisbon, Portugal, between 1968 and 2005.

History and profile[edit]

A Capital was first published on 21 February 1968.[1][2] The paper was established as a result of the editorial conflicts in the daily newspaper Diário Popular.[1]

A Capital had a populist stance.[3] Before the Carnation revolution the paper was owned by different companies, including the Banco Espírito e Comercial de Lisboa, CUF, Tabaqueira and Sorel.[4] The paper was nationalized following the revolution.[1]

A Capital ceased publication on 30 July 2005.[3]
