Tour 6: Tlacolula Market
A day in Tlacolula de Matamoros will introduce you to one of the oldest, largest, and busiest markets in Oaxaca State. Tlacolula is also home to a 16th-century Dominican church. Its chapel, “La Capilla del Señor de Tlacolula,” is known for its Baroque ornate decoration and a crucifix to which many miracles have been ascribed. This Sunday market is one of the most authentic markets of Oaxaca, selling barbacoa de chivo, pan de cazuela, mezcal, pulque, tejate and handcrafts of this region.
