Le Figaro is a prominent French daily newspaper that has been in publication since 1826. It holds the reputation of being the oldest national daily newspaper still in circulation in France. Founded by Maurice Eymery, Le Figaro initially focused on literary and cultural news.

However, over the years, it expanded to cover a wide range of topics including politics, business, sports, and international news. The headquarters of Le Figaro is located in Paris, France. It operates from a historic building on the Boulevard Haussmann, which was designed by architect René-Patouillard in 1866.

The main products offered by Le Figaro include the daily print edition of the newspaper, digital subscriptions, and an online platform.

The newspaper also publishes various magazines, including Madame Figaro (a women's fashion and lifestyle publication), Figaro Santé (a health magazine), and Figaro Étudiant (targeted towards students).

It has also ventured into audiovisual production, with partnerships in the film and television industry. Le Figaro holds a strong market position in France, with a loyal readership and a significant market share.
