Description
The Rooster from Barcelos (galo de barcelos) the unofficial symbol of Portugal - The motif seems to embody the love of life displayed by the Portuguese people.

The symbol has its genesis in the history of Barcelos. The city of Barcelos is located just east of Braga. Even though it is not on a major highway, it still is a good sized city. The legend of the Rooster is so old that no one knows for sure its real source. There are serveral versions of the legend.
