The Rooster from Barcelos
Extremadura
The story of the Rooster from barcelos
 
The  de Barcelos is the unofficial symbol of Portugal. 
The legend of the Rooster is so old that no one knows for sure its real source. There are serveral versions of the legend. One version is: At a banquet given by a rich landowner in Barcelos, a valuable piece of silver was stolen and one of guests was accused of the theft. He was tried by the court and was found guilty. In spite of the overwhelming evidence against him, he still protested his innocence. The magistrate granted the man a final chance to prove his case. Seeing a cock in a basket nearby he said, “If I am innocent, the cock will crow.” The cock crowed and the prisoner was allowed to go free.
