Patricia Yurena Rodríguez Alonso, born in 1990 in Charco del Pino, Granadilla municipality, Tenerife, represented Spain at Miss Universe 2013 contest in Moscow last November 9th finishing as the first runner-up.
Patricia Yurena, a truly Canarian beauty queen captured the crown of Miss Spain in 2008 when she was only 17 years old. Due to the Miss Universe eligibility regulations that state every contestant must be eighteen, Patricia Yurena was ineligible to attend Miss Universe contest that year.
Five years later, Patricia Yurena won again the Miss Spain 2013 contest, being the first woman to win this title twice and this time gaining the right to represent Spain at Miss Universe 2013 contest where she eventually finished as first runner-up.
Congratulations to Patricia Yurena, our local beauty queen!!!!
