History[eedit | eedit soorce]

Sobradinho began wi a ranch o that name belangin tae the toun o Formosa, Goiás. Accordin tae popular history the name came frae the existence o an auld cross built lang afore 1850 alang the banks o a stream near the ranch. On ane o the airms o the cross wur twa little bird nests o a bird cried joão de barro, ane on top o the ither, formin a little twa-storey hoose—a sobradinho in Portuguese. This phenomenon attractit the attention o passersbi who teuk it as a reference point wi the name Cross o Sobradinho or Sobradinho o the Cross. As time went bi the local stream wis cried Sobradinho Stream.

Acause o the need tae hoose the migrant faimilies frae the northeast, Goiás, Bahia an ither states, Sobradinho wis creatit alang the auld heich-gate that linkit the ceety o Planaltina, Goiás an the Federal Caipital being built (1959). The day that auld heich-gate is a fower-lane motorwa an residents o Sobradinho can be in Brasília in a few minutes time.
