Ajalvir (Spanish pronunciation: [axalˈβiɾ]) is a town and municipality in the Autonomous Community of Madrid in central Spain, located 26 kilometres (16 mi) north-east of Madrid and 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) from Alcalá de Henares. It is located in the comarca of Alcalá.
The name Ajalvir is believed to have derived from the Arabic al-jalaoui, meaning isolated or separated.
