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.
