"No estás solo" (Spanish pronunciation: [no esˈtas ˈsolo], "You Aren't Alone") was the Spanish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1987, performed in Spanish by Patricia Kraus, the daughter of Spanish tenor Alfredo Kraus.

The song was composed by Rafael Martínez and Rafael Trabucchelli; the latter had written the runner up song in the Eurovision Song Contest 1971, "En un mundo nuevo". The lyrics were by Kraus herself.

The song is a soothing ode to friendship in which Kraus sings to an unnamed loved one: "Hear me, you're not alone/Hear me, you are loved". Kraus also recorded an English language version of the song, entitled "With Love".

The song was performed eighth on the night, following Portugal's Nevada with "Neste barco à vela" and preceding Turkey's Seyyal Taner & Locomotif with "Şarkım Sevgi Üstüne". At the close of voting, it had received 10 points, placing 19th in a field of 22.

It was succeeded as Spanish representative at the 1988 Contest by La Década Prodigiosa with "La chica que yo quiero (Made in Spain)".
