The quest to save a dying Spanish dialect in Colorado’s San Luis Valley: “A treasure that exists nowhere else in the world”

Posted by admin on

SAN LUIS VALLEY — Dennis Lopez can trace his lineage here back to 1847, when pioneers from Mexico first put down roots in the area. He still tends to a ranch owned by his wife’s family in San Luis, a small valley community of less than 1,000 people that’s regarded as the oldest town in Colorado.
