Sao Miguel do Gostoso - Why the Name?

The name São Miguel do Gostoso originates from two legends and always brings a smile to the faces of Brasilians.

Gostoso translates to "yummy" or "tasty" in English.

The first legend is that there was a man living in the area named Manoel Gostoso. Manuel often provided accommodation to travelling salesmen, entertaining them with his captivating stories and his unique sense of humour. After some time Manoel became known in the village simply as Mr. Gostoso. Many years later the local population paid homage to him by naming the town after him.

The second legend is that on the 29th September of 1899, Mr Miguel Félix Martins, inaugurated the first church of the village as a homage to Saint Michael (São Miguel) of Arcanjo after a miracle that is said to have occurred through the intercession of the Holy One. He placed a statue of the Saint in the church which remains there to this day.

When the village received its political independence from Touros, a neighbouring town, the local population joined the two legends together to form the name Sao Miguel do Gostoso.
