Writing on blue

Informative themes, other sources of interest, guidance and topics all help expats get up to speed on the greater aspects of life in Valencia and Spain. Information concerning media channels and alternative platforms for sourcing information are featured.

The publication Spain in English offers a veritable plethora of news from across Spain as well as a selection of regional current affairs, including Valencia. Whilst highly respected El País also presents informative news online, their articles however, concern international events yet seldom Spanish.

The Local is another online publication aimed at at the international community. They require payment before being able to read any article, so even browser search results are pointless to non-subscribers.

Other possible options of interest to expats residing in and around the city include The Olive Press, Valencia News and The Valencia Report.


A delightful Irish resident and journalist in the city, Patricia Murray, has created a large following with her platform Valencia World. Articles are available on all manner of topics including events and, as such, of interest to expat locals. Select the language translation of your choice.
