El Centinela is a Christian Seventh-day Adventist magazine published monthly in Spanish by the Pacific Press publishing house. El Centinela is one of the oldest Christian magazines in Spanish.

El Centinela has the purpose of bringing attention to the second coming of Jesus Christ by presenting information found in the Bible.


El Centinela was first published in 1903 by Brenton E. Connerly in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, under the name El Centinela de la Verdad ("The Sentinel of the Truth"). It moved to Panama in March 1909 where it joined with the magazine Caribbean Watchman. It ceased publication when a fire burned the building on March 23, 1911.

In July 1919 Pacific Press took over its publication, initially as a quarterly magazine, it became a monthly in 1920. The first director was Ernesto J. Johnson.

At times El Centinela has been published in Puerto Rico, Panama, California, USA, and most recently Idaho.
