Miss World Spain is one of the most important beauty pageants in Spain, and have always received beautiful aspirants from all over the country. It’s pageant season, and Spain is also starting with its long and scrutinizing process of selecting the most deserving Spanish beauty to represent the country at the Miss World competition.

The regional crowning for the pageant's contestants has gone underway and the winners for most provinces are out. Representing La Rioja in the final of the contest Miss World Spain 2018 is 20-year-old Raquel Boto.

Raquel has lived in Logroño for most part of her life. She has studied at Esdir Escuela Superior de Diseño de La Rioja, a design school in La Rioja. Raquel also comes through as an obvious fitness freak, with an array of videos, on her facebook, of her working out with CosMiX fit&dance.

What we like most about her, is that she seems fearless, and edgy, and has several tattoos, some of which are also visible.

The most significant province in the competition, remains Malaga, as most contestants from the area walk away with the Miss World Spain crown at the finale. It will be interesting to see if this beauty will be able to change that.

Before 2013, Miss World Spain was appointed and not crowned. The first Runner-Up from the Miss Spain pageant was appointed Miss World Spain and would represent Spain at the Miss World pageant. On occasion, when the winner did not qualify (due to age) for the contest, another contestant from Miss Spain was sent. However, in 2013 Miss Spain was shut down due to bankruptcy, and it gave way to Miss World Spain.

The Miss World Spain 2018 gala will be held on 15th September 2018. The hotel Alegría Costa Ballena (Rota) official headquarters of Miss World Spain will host the candidates of the most important beauty gala in Spain.
