Grupo Santillana, formerly Santillana Ediciones Generales, is a Spanish publisher founded in 1959 by Jesús de Polanco and Francisco Pérez González.[1][2]

From 2008 and due to the high debts of the group PRISA, Santillana made disinvestments to guide itself.[3][4][5] In 2008 the bookshop Crisol, which come to have fourteen subsidiaries in Spain, two in Buenos Aires and one in Lima, closed.[6][7] In 2010 it was sold the 25% of shares.[8]

In 2014 Santillana sold all its trade publishing (including the Alfaguara and Objetiva publishing houses) to Penguin Random House for €72 million. Santillana then shifted its focus towards educational publishing.[9]

On October 19, 2020, Santillana was acquired by the Finnish company Sanoma.[10]
