History and profile
El Diario Vasco was founded in 1934 by the Sociedad Vascongada de Publicaciones, led by conservative writers such as Juan Ignacio Luca de Tena or Ramiro de Maeztu. The paper has its headquarters in San Sebastián.
Following the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936, El Diario Vasco supported the Nationalist faction and was closed by the Republican government for two months until San Sebastián was conquered by the Nationalists. In 1945 the paper was bought by the Falange-controlled holders of El Correo Español, which then changed its name from El Pueblo Vasco SA to Bilbao Editorial SA.
