Pelayos de la Presa (literally in English, Pelayos of the Dam) is a Spanish municipality of the Community of Madrid. It has an area of 7.58 km² with a population of 2,417 inhabitants and a density of 318.87 inhabitants/km².

Located in the southwest of the Community of Madrid and near the St. John's Swamp (in Spanish, Pantano de San Juan), which conditions its economy based mainly on tourism and services, so the local population multiplied by five in summer.


In Pelayos de la Presa there is a day care (public), a public school kindergarten and facilities for primary education.


The holidays are around 15 August and last five days. They have been great singers that have made us enjoy our night. Bring a place where you can watch bullfights, and the last day to cut a young heifer. It is very funny but as they put something dangerous bleeding in the middle of the square, on a plain surrounded by a circular trench about 60 cm. deep and filled with liquid mud. Running a little drunk with a heifer may cost you a tumble.
