Observador is a Portuguese online newspaper started on May 19, 2014. It is the only Portuguese newspaper in Portugal with a defined political orientation (right-wing liberalism).[2]

In the first month, it reported 630,000 visitors.[7] By August 2015, it reported six million visitors and 35 million pageviews.[8] In January 2020, it reported 6.79 million visitors and 51.34 million pageviews.[9]

In its first year, the newspaper won the "Launch of the Year" award in the Meios & Publicidade Awards. It also elected as newspaper of the year in 2018[10] by the same organization and it won the 2019 Edition of the Marktest award in "Press and Digital - Media".[11]
