Sra. Branyas Morera became the oldest person in the history of Spain after surpassing the age of the previous record holder of Mrs. Ana María Vela Rubio on 21 April 2023, at the age of 116 years and 48 days.
Maria lives her daily life at her residence in Santa Maria del Tura in the city of Olot, Catalonia, Spain.
