About us: The Origin of Our Name

Grupo Santillana’s origins are in a famous historical town in Spain called Santillana del Mar. The name Santillana is derived from two words in Spanish, Llanos Santos. In English they translate to Elysian Fields or Holy Fields, and in French to the recognized Champs Elysées. In any language, the interpretation of these two words is heaven or paradise.
