Sonata a la Española is a sonata for solo guitar composed in 1969 by the Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo.

The piece has three movements. The first of these, allegro assai, introduces a steady tread against music with a nasal-like sound. The second, adagio, has a theme centered on the lower strings of the guitar. The final, allegro moderato, is a bolero mixed with the Spanish music.
