Oldest person in the world: Maria Branyas is 115 years old


“We used to live better”: This woman is the oldest person in the world

How does one become 115 years old? The Spaniard Maria Branyas has several recommendations for this. Good nutrition, for example: «I eat natural yoghurt every day.» And: “I’ve always eaten everything – but only in small amounts.”

Maria Branyas celebrated her 115th birthday on March 4, 2022.


Maria Branyas has just been certified as the world’s oldest person. Previously, the French Lucile Randon, a nun, held this record. But Lucile Randon, who was called Sister André in her religious community, died on January 17, 2023 at the age of 118 in Toulon in southern France.
