El País (English: The Country) is the most widely-circulated newspaper in Spain. According to the 2005 Estudio General de Medios (General Media Study), it has about 2.1 million readers; El Mundo ("The World") is second with an estimated 1.29 million readers.[1] El País is often referred to as a newspaper of record from Spain, along with its fellow Madrid morning dailies El Mundo and ABC.[citation needed]

It was first published on May 4, 1976, during the early stages of the Spanish transition to democracy. Founder José Ortega Spottorno based it on the model of France's Le Monde. It is now part of the media conglomerate Grupo Prisa [2].

On September 26, 2007 the paper published the Bush-Aznar memo, a leaked transcript of a closed-door meeting between presidents Bush and Aznar shortly before the invasion of Iraq [3].
