ROOSTER OF BARCELOS
The brightly coloured Barcelos cockerel (Galo de Barcelos) is an unofficial national symbol of Portugal. You can find Barcelos roosters depicted in ceramic and wood or printed on t-shirts, postcards, dish towels and aprons all around Portugal.
But be careful, many are mass produced and are not locally made. When in doubt, shop at PortugalRoosters.com, all our Roosters are made and hand painted in Portugal. By the time you are back from your trip, you can order as many original Barcelos Rooster as you need for your home or your loved ones.
