Coq de Barcelos en céramique
The legend of the rooster of Barcelos
Coq de Barcelos en céramiqueThe Barcelos Rooster symbolizes Faith, Justice and Luck. It is a symbol anchored in Portuguese popular tradition. This traditional rooster is represented in very bright colours representative of the traditions of the Minho region, the cradle of Portugal.

Barcelos is a small town in Northern Portugal. Several crimes were committed there but nobody was blamed and arrested until the day a pilgrim travelling to Saint John of Compostela was found guilty by the court.
He claimed his innocence, and to do so went to the judge. Seeing a rooster in a basket near him, the accused said: "It is just as true that I am innocent and that your rooster will rise and crow when I am hanged!
The cock crowed and the judge ran to the place where the man had been hanged. He found that after the knot was incorrectly tightened, the man was alive. He was thus considered innocent and released.

The coq de Barcelona’s looked absolutely amazing

This is a present for my daughter so am waiting for her to open it on Christmas Day. We were in Lagos Portugal a couple of years ago and she purchased a blue coq BUT the dog broke it so I am expecting her to be thrilled. The purchase of this present was smooth other than a phone call from the import at the airport which was soon sorted. Many thanks .
