Pilar Estravados (born Conchita Lopez) is a major protagonist in Agatha Christie's 1938 Hercule Poirot novel, Hercule Poirot's Christmas.

Conchita/Pilar is the self-proclaimed estranged granddaughter of Simeon Lee and the lover of Stephen Farr. However, it turns out that the real Pilar died in the Spanish civil war and Conchita Lopez, as her travel companion, stole her identity and impersonated her to fulfill her companion's goal in her stead.

In Agatha Christie's Poirot, she was portrayed by Sasha Behar.
