"Dile que la quiero" (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈdile ke la ˈkjeɾo], "Tell Her that I Love Her") was the Spanish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2001, performed in Spanish by David Civera.

The song was written by Alejandro Abad who had represented Spain at the 1994 Contest with "Ella no es ella". It appears on the Eurovision Song Contest 2001 compilation album misspelled as "Dole Que la Quiero". It appears on Civera's album of the same name, with the introduction part repeated, making it slightly longer. The album also contains a remix version so therefore three versions of the song officially exist.

"Dile que la quiero" was performed thirteenth on the night, following Ireland's Gary O'Shaughnessy with "Without Your Love" and preceding France's Natasha St-Pier with "Je n'ai que mon âme". At the close of voting, it had received 76 points, placing 6th in a field of 23.

The song was succeeded as Spanish representative at the 2002 Contest by Rosa with "Europe's Living a Celebration".
