Galo de Barcelos. Portuguese Good Luck Rooster
The Rooster of Barcelos is the major symbol of the Portuguese Folk Culture and it is believed to be an amulet. That's why the Portuguese Rooster is also known as the Good Luck Rooster.
There's a medieval legend behind this belief: a dead and cooked rooster sang to witness the innocence of a condemned, who was set free after the cockcrowing.
