The legend of the Rooster of BarcelosGalo de Barcelos The legend of the Rooster of Barcelos tells the story of a deadroosters miraculous intervention to proove the innocence of a manwho had been falsely accused and sentenced to death. The story isassociated with the 17th-century calvary that is part of the collectionof the Archeological Museum located in Pao dos Condes, a gothic-style palace in Barcelos, a city in the Braga District ofnorthwest Portugal. According to the legend, silver had been stolen from a landownerin Barcelos, and the inhabitants of that city were looking for thecriminal who had committed the crime. One day, a man fromneighboring Galicia turned up and became suspect, despite his pleasof innocence. The Galician swore that he was merely passing throughBarcelos on a Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela to completea promise. (Portuguese, "Cruzeiro do Senhor do Galo") in praise to the VirginMary and to Saint James. The monument is located in theArcheological Museum of Barcelos. 7. Nevertheless, the authorities arrested the Galician and condemned himto hang. The man asked them to take him in front of the judge who hadcondemned him. The authorities honored his request and took him to thehouse of the magistrate, who was holding a banquet with some friends.Affirming his innocence, the Galician pointed to a roasted cock on top ofthe banquet table and exclaimed, "It is as certain that I am innocent as it iscertain that this rooster will crow when they hang me." The judge pushedaside his plate because he decided to not eat the rooster. But still, thejudge ignored the Galicians appeal. However, while the pilgrim was being hanged, the roasted rooster stoodup on the table and crowed as the Galician predicted. Understanding hiserror, the judge ran to the gallows, only to discover that the Galician hadbeen saved from hanging thanks to a poorly made knot in the rope. Theman was immediately freed and sent off in peace. Some years later, the Galician returned to Barcelos to sculpt the Calvary(or Crucifix) to the Lord of the Rooster. 8.
