  • The Archaeological Museum of Barcelos consists of the ruins of what was once the palace of the Count of Barcelos and Dukes of Bragança, at one end of the 14th-century bridge located on the Cávado River in the city of Barcelos. This palace was destroyed during the 1755 earthquake and what was left is now an outdoor archaeological museum. Authentic Roman columns and medieval sarcophagi can be seen, but the most interesting is a 14th-century stone cross, and the well-known O Lord of the Rooster Cruise, which represents the man of the famous legend of the rooster.
