Barcelos rooster is main element of traditional pottery, due to its connection with the legend evoked in the 15th century Calvary, preserved in the Archaeological Museum. On his way to be hanged, an unduly convicted man said that the rooster that the judge was about to eat for lunch would crow, as a proof of his innocence. The animal rose from the plate and crew indeed. People shouted “miracle” and the poor man was released. Barcelos rooster is made of clay with a red crest and a black body, ornamented with hearts and multi-coloured dots. It was represented and recreated endless times, standing out as an icon of the city and even the country.
