Maria do Couto Maia-Lopes (24 October 1890 — 25 July 2005) was a Portuguese supercentenarian, who was at the age of 114 years, 274 days, the oldest living person in Portugal and was the oldest person ever from Portugal until Maria de Jesus surpassed her age. She was the world's fifth oldest living person. She became the oldest living person in Portugal upon the death of Jose Ferreira-Andrade on 22 February 2000 and held the title until her death five years later.

She remembered the day on which the last king of Portugal, D. Manuel II visited the nearby town of Espinho on 23 November 1908.

In her later years, she was nearly deaf and blind. She was bedridden after a 2002 accident with boiling water burned her feet. She had eight daughters, seven grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren. Her husband died in 1942. One of her great-granddaughters married the grandson of Augusto Moreira de Oliveira, the oldest Portuguese man ever.
