competing stories

;ref name "encmuc" There are two competing stories as to how the modern settlement was established by the Spanish. The first states that it was founded as a way station for Europeans traveling to and from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec at the location between the Salado and Seco Rivers. However, flooding forced the community to move to the present location. The other version has the settlement founded by friars Gonzalo Lucero and Bernadino de Minaya as an evangelization center and monastery, to which the native population eventually drifted. Either way, the settlement was formally established as Santa Maria de la Asuncion Tlacolula in 1560. One of the first major constructions in the Spanish settlement was the Church of La Asunción in 1561. Many of the religious festivals which continue to this day were established around the same time. After the establishment of the town, several haciendas were established belonging to the Alferez, Taniye and Soriano families. During the Mexican Revolution, factions loyal to Venustiano Carranza and Francisco Villa fought for dominance here, with battles in the Sierra Juárez (Sierra Juárez, Oaxaca) mountains and at the city itself.

Tlacolula de Matamoros

'''Tlacolula de Matamoros''' is a city and municipality (Municipalities of Mexico) in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, about 30 km from the center of the city of Oaxaca (Oaxaca, Oaxaca) on Federal Highway 190 (Mexican Federal Highway 190), which leads east to Mitla and the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. It is part of the Tlacolula District in the east of the Valles Centrales Region (Valles Centrales de Oaxaca).

The city is the main commercial center for the Tlacolula Valley area, and best known for its weekly open air market held on Sundays. This market is one of the oldest, largest and busiest in Oaxaca, mostly selling foodstuffs and other necessities for the many rural people which come into town on this day to shop.

The name most likely comes from the Nahuatl phrase Tlacolullan, which means "place of abundance." However, some trace the origin to the Nahuatl phrase Tlacololli, which means "something twisted." Its original Zapotec (Zapotec languages) name was Guillbaan, which means "village of the burials." The appendage "de Matamoros" is to honor Mariano Matamoros of the Mexican War of Independence.
