Intellectual periodicals in Spanish

What are the most interesting intellectual periodicals in Spanish?

Is there a close equivalent to the London Review of Books? To Dissent? To n+1? What distinguishes the slate of intellectual periodicals available in Spanish from that in English?

The Spanish LRB is probably Babelia, part of El Pais.

In Mexico you have Letras Libres, Nexos and to a certain extent Proceso, AlgarabĂ­a and La Tempestad. They aren't as serious as the publications you mention, and the coverage tends to be all over the map between current events, history, literature and cultural reportage. In PerĂș, Etiqueta Negra is becoming quite famous in literary circles.

I think the big difference is that having a very small staff and little money, force magazines to produce less in-depth analysis.

Le Monde covers current events and has a heavy left slant, but I like it. A lot of the articles are just translated from the French though. Definitely going to check out the periodicals people have posted though.
