The Algodor is a 102 km long river in Central Spain. It is a left hand tributary to the Tagus.

Course

Its source is at the Laguna del Navajo in the Montes de Toledo, within the Retuerta del Bullaque municipal limits, Castile-La Mancha. It flows roughly northwards across the Province of Toledo into the Tagus at Aceca, a place near Algodor, the village within the Aranjuez municipality limits that gives the river its name.[1]

The Algodor River has two dams, which form the 133 hm³ Embalse de Finisterre reservoir built in 1977, located between Tembleque, Mora, Villanueva de Bogas and Turleque,[2] and the smaller 8 hm³ Embalse del Castro reservoir built in 1974 near Villamuelas.[3]

All the Algodor's tributaries are small rivulets except for the Bracea River on its left margin.
