The origins of Miss Spain date 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.

It is currently broadcast to the entire country by Telecinco, from the Marina d'Or resort, in the province of Castellón.

Any woman who wants to participate in Miss Spain must appear before provincial branches of the pageant, and learn about the requirements needed, as well as methods for selection to be carried out in that province. Once selected by a delegation, they will represent their province in the contest. After a month of preliminary competition, events and cultural activities around the country, the new Miss Spain is selected.

The winner of Miss Spain is sent to represent her country in Miss Universe. However, if Miss Spain is underage, a runner-up is sent to Miss Universe. Overall in these international pageants, Spain's success has been moderate with one Miss Universe title in 1974 and 3 Miss International titles in 1977, 1990 and 2008.

After the inactivity of Miss Spain contest, the company Be Beautiful Spain, S.L. was created by Guillermo Escobar García, former worker of Miss Spain and who founded the contests Miss Spain Universe and Miss Spain World. In 2013, the pageant is separated into several pageants - like Miss World Spain and Miss Spain.

In the year 2018, after seven years of inactivity, the contest Miss Spain returns with Pedro Quesada as president and with Juncal Rivero as general director.

The winner of Miss España represents her country at Miss Universe. On occasion, when the winner does not qualify (due to age) for either contest, a runner-up is sent. Sometimes, the winner can also compete at Miss World and Miss Europe if the winner will be available to compete by the Miss España Organization. However, Miss España Organization was claimed to bankrupt in 2012, and separated into several independent contests choosing the representatives in the International beauty pagents like Miss World Spain (Miss España Mundo) and Miss Universe Spain (Miss España Universo).
