Torrejón de Ardoz, with more than 126,000 inhabitants, is one of the most important towns in the Community of Madrid. It also belongs to El Corredor del Henares and is located in a privileged enclave: 20 kilometers from Madrid, 10 kilometers from Barajas Airport and very close to Alcalá de Henares. In addition, the A-2 highway, which crosses the municipality, has made this municipality grow in recent decades.
Historically speaking, the creation of the village of Torrejón de Ardoz coincides with the construction of the Aldovea Castle in the 11th century. In 1118, the Crown of Castile conquered Alcalá again, also including the land on which Torrejón currently sits. In the 19th century, in this same place, the Battle of Torrejón de Ardoz took place. Its Air Base, in American possession until 1992, is now part of the Ministry of Defense.
