Social and cultural aspects
Barcelos' population was alarmed by a crime that had occurred in the city. A Galician pilgrim (from the Galicia region in Spain) who was traveling the Camino de Santiago de Compostela to fulfill a promise was accused of the crime. The Galician swore that he had not committed the crime, but no one believed his word. Moments before being taken to the gallows, the accused asked to be taken to the home of the judge who had convicted him of the crime. The judge was having dinner with friends and there was a rooster on the table. In front of the judge, the pilgrim defended his innocence and said: It is just as right that I am innocent, as this rooster crows when they hang me. Even with laughter and no one believing in his innocence, the unexpected happened and, when the man was about to be hanged, the cock crowed. The city judge ran to the gallows and saw the man with the noose around his neck, though he was still alive. That was how the medieval legend of the Rooster of Barcelos became known, with the rooster crowing to save an innocent.
