Description

The Legend of the Cock

«Among the belongings of the 13th century archaeo-logical Museum of Barcelos - North Portugal is associated the curious legend of the cock.
The inhabitants of the burgh were quite alarmed with a crime, and this all the more because they could not discover the criminal. One day appeared a Gallician who became suspect at once.
The authorities resolved to seize him and in spite of all his oathes of innocence nobody believe him. Nobody thought it credible that the Gallician was on his way to Compostela to worship St. Tiago and that he was an ardent devotee of the Saint so venerated at Compostela. Finally he was condemned to death by hanging. As a last favor, before his execution, he asked to be brought once more into the presence of the judge who had condemned him. The request was granted and they conducted him to the residence of the magistrate, who was just banqueting with some friends. The Gallician declared again his innocence and in presence of the incredulity of the guests, he appointed the roasted cock on the table exclaiming: 'My innocence is as certain as the roasted cock will cry, if I should be hanged'.
Everybody laughed at him, but as matter of fact, nobody dared touching the cock. However what seemed impossible, became reality. When the pilgrim was to be hanged, in that very moment the roasted cock stood up on the table and began crying. Nobody doubted any more of the innocence of the condemned. They hurried to the gibbet and saw the poor man with the rope round his neck. But a free knot had avoided his suffocation. Immediately set free he was sent away in peace.
Some years later, he returned again to Barcelos and built a monument in praise of St. Tiago and the Holy Virgin.»

Hope you enjoy. It really works!
