Altamira means overlooking in Spanish. The word comes from the Latin roots « altus » (high) and « mirāri» (to look).
Altamira as a name is meant to describe a place located at the highest point, which offers a scenic view of earth as you look down.
Overlooking allows to see far, and to discover horizons that are invisible from down below. As such, Altamira aims to enable people to see the bigger picture, understand the landscape in its globality, locate themselves in it, and know where they stand.
Altamira is also a complex of caves in North Spain containing Paleolithic drawings. They not only contain one of the best-preserved prehistoric paintings but also show humanity’s earliest accomplished art.
