The 2015 Miss Universe Spain Pageant will be held on July 30, 2015. Desiree Cordero, TOP 10 at Miss Universe 2014, will crown her successor at the end of the event. The winner will represent Spain at Miss Universe 2015.
Miss Spain’s origins go back to 1929, when early contests took place until the advent of civil war in 1936, followed by the dictatorship of Francisco Franco, which did not permit beauty pageants until 1961. Spain’s success has been moderate with one Miss Universe title in 1974 and 3 Miss International titles in 1977, 1990 and 2008. In 2013, the pageant is separated into several pageants – like Miss World Spain and Miss Spain.
In 2013, Patricia Yurena Rodriguez became the first runner-up at Miss Universe 2013 in Moscow. She is only the second Spanish woman to place 1st Runner-Up (the first one was Teresa Sánchez López in 1985).
