Tierrasanta, translated from Spanish as “holy land” or “holy ground”, is a community that resides within the city of San Diego, California. The symbol of the Tierrasanta community is an encircled Conquistador cross to pay respects to its Spanish origins. Tierrasanta is also referred to as “The Islands in the Hills” by locals and on various welcome signs. In the late 18th and 19th centuries, Tierrasanta was originally part of the Mission San Diego de Alcala ranch. The United States military purchased the land in 1941 and dubbed in Camp Elliot, which became a Marine Corps training facility. The land would be transferred to the Navy in 1944, and deactivated in 1946. As it stands today, the developed part of Tierrasanta is situated like an island of sorts, and is not directly bordered by any other community, owing to its nickname. The community is relatively tight knit, and includes lighted sports fields, a large swimming pool, tennis courts, a gymnasium and meeting rooms in the Tierrasanta Recreation Center, where most community activities are focused. With gorgeous homes, natural beauty and a wonderful community culture, Tierrasanta has made its mark as a great place to be for house hunters and visitors alike.
