Its meaning has been interpreted in different ways: "Where deer are hunted with arrows" "Where deer hunting arrows are made" "Deer-hunting fletchers' place" "Where fuentes are hunted with arrows"HistoryMazamitla was founded by the Aztecs in 1165. It belonged to the manor of Tzapotlán and paid tribute to the chieftain of Tamazollan. In 1481 the area was invaded by the Purépecha so that he could take the Laguna de Sayula.
