Latest Local and World News in South America – The Oldest Newspaper in the Spanish Language
El Mercurio de Valparaíso, published on September 12, 1827, is the oldest newspaper in uninterrupted circulation in Chile and the world in the Spanish language.
It was founded on September 12, 1827, in Valparaíso, Chile.
In its beginnings, El Mercurio de Valparaíso appeared only on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
There was no permanent team of editors; the newspaper was fed by the contributions of the founder and friends invited to write.
This type of newspaper had a very low circulation, a fact that derived from the scarcity of paper and inks.
For the readers, the problem was solved with the following practice: a neighbor who could read would buy a copy of the newspaper and read it in public during the gatherings.
It was not until May 5, 1829 that El Mercurio de Valparaíso began its daily editions.
The “El Peruano” Newspaper
We also highlight “El Peruano”, the official newspaper of Peru.
This newspaper was founded by Simón Bolívar on October 22, 1825 under the name of “El Peruano Independiente”.
Although “El Peruano” was founded before El Mercurio de Valparaíso, it has not circulated uninterruptedly under the same name.
Nowadays, the content of “El Peruano” is mainly composed of the laws that are enacted and the acts, expenditures and appointments of the State.
“El Peruano” also has a news section and supplements.
