Abascal worked as a secretary for a Republican general during the Civil War and once it became clear the Republicans were losing the city of Madrid to Francisco Franco, she was put in a convoy fleeing Madrid for Barcelona.

With more than 17,000 people aged 100 or over, Spain is the country with the greatest life expectancy after Japan, OECD data and the latest population census shows. Over a year, Reuters photographer Andrea Comas interviewed and photographed Spaniards aged 100 or more across the country from the green-hilled northern region of Asturias to the Balearic island of Menorca. Average life expectancy at birth in Spain is 83.2, according to the latest OECD statistics made available in 2013, just a shade below the 83.4 years on average a Japanese newborn can expect to live. Most of the men and women Comas interviewed showed a zest for life and an interest in pastimes from amateur dramatics to playing the piano. Many also continued to carry out daily duties from farm work to caring for a disabled child. REUTERS/Andrea Comas SEARCH "CENTENARIANS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
