About the Bacas

With a lineage stretching back to the earliest Spanish settlers in North America, the Bacas were Colorado ranchers, traders and civic leaders who were proud of their Castilian heritage and maintained an air of Hispanic culture and European sophistication – even during the rough and tumble pioneer days of the 1800s.

The Bacas established themselves as traders and ranchers along the storied Santa Fe Trail. The family's patriarch, Felipe, helped found the town of Trinidad in the southeastern corner of the state and was recognized as one of the 50 most influential Coloradoans of all time in 1999.

Their essence has been captured in Baca; an unparalleled dining experience featuring a rich and tempting selection of authentic Colorado cuisine prepared with tastes and techiques from all over the world.
