Maria [María] Antonia Castro (10 June 1881 – 16 January 1996) was a validated Spanish supercentenarian who was noted for being Spain's longevity recordholder for 20 years (1996-2016). She was the oldest Spaniard ever, dying at the age of 114 years, 220 days, but she is now second behind Ana Vela-Rubio. She was the world's fifth-oldest person when she died, based on revised historical data.

Her case was initially verified by the International Database on Longevity.

Before 2013, her identity was only known to be M.A.C.C., but, in 2013, the identities of Maria Antonia Castro and Maria del Carmen Lopez were revealed.[1]
