Brief History of the Galo De Barcelos:  At a banquet given by a rich landowner in Barcelos, Portugal, a valuable piece of silver was stolen and one of guests was accused of the theft. The thief was tried by the court and was found guilty. In spite of the overwhelming evidence against him, he still protested his innocence. The magistrate granted the man a final chance to prove his case. Seeing a cock in a basket nearby he said, “If I am innocent, the cock will crow.” The cock crowed and the prisoner was allowed to go free.
