Benalmádena town hall organised a special celebration last week in order to mark the 106th birthday of Isabel Pastor, the town's oldest resident.

The milestone birthday party, which was attended by Isabel's family and friends, along with the town's mayor, Víctor Navas, and several members of his council, was held in the senior citizens' centre in Arroyo de la Miel.

Born in Cordoba on 24 February 1914, the joyful pensioner revealed that the key to her healthy longevity was a strict Mediterranean diet and "plenty of olive oil", adding, "I am very old, but very well".
