Maria del Carmen Lopez (3 April 1883 – 3 July 1997) is a validated Spanish supercentenarian who was, at time of her death, 114 years, 91 days old, and the second-oldest person from Spain only behind Maria Antonia Castro. Before they were discovered, Joan Riudavets was thought to be the oldest person from Spain, but Castro and Lopez were recorded as being older than him, pushing him to 3rd place.[1]

She is now the third-oldest Spanish person ever, behind Ana Vela-Rubio and Maria Antonia Castro.

Before 2013, her identity was only known to be "M.C.L.L.", but in 2013, the identities of Maria del Carmen Lopez and Maria Antonia Castro were revealed.
