The Olive Press is a popular English language publication in Andalucia and is free. The Rough
Guide votes it ‘the best ..for its investigative reporting etc’ while we were recently voted ‘best expat
paper in Spain’ and ‘second in the world’ at the TESCA awards in London.
With a team of half a dozen professionaly-trained journalists we break stories on a weekly basis
and are regularly employed by the national newspapers and TV networks in the UK to investigate
stories in Spain.
Launched in May 2006, it is Andalucia’s only newspaper written by real investigative journalists, professional food, travel and art writers and with contributions from many of Spain’s top foreign writers.
Distribution covers the entire Costa del Sol and all the way along the coast from Cadiz to Mojacar in Almeria and the vast majority of inland Andalucia. It is continually expanding into new areas and new distribution points.
- Readers are English-speaking people in Andalucia, or with strong links to Andalucia, who want a quality read about the region.
- Readership is attracted to interesting and useful articles that cover everything from the Spanish legal systems to tourism meaning that advertisers of all markets benefit.
- More than one million expats living in Andalucía mostly from Britain but also from Germany, Scandinavia, Holland and America. The amount of expendable wealth that our readers have at their disposal continues to attract advertisers.
- Many of its readers are well travelled and show a keen interest in experiencing their region, which is a prime advertising medium for travel and tourism related businesses.
