The Barcelos Legend

The idealisation of the Barcelos Rooster is derived from a legend concerning a Galego who was sentenced to hung.Despite his protests of innocence.
In a last minute-appeal to the judge, who was having dinner at the time, the condemned man made a bold statement:
If his claim of innocence was true, the roasted rooster, resting on the judge’s plate would het up and crow, Suddenly, a glorious scarlet-plumed cockerel rose from the plate crowing loud and long.

The man was acquitted, of course!
