Walking down towards Ribeira, we will pass through the most traditional streets and talk
about the changes in social organization that time has shaped. We’ll also discuss the medieval defense systems of the city
and the importance of the productive activities present here.
We’ll clarify the symbol of the rooster figure “Galo de Barcelos”, which can easily be found for sale in all corners of Portugal.
Finishing very close to the statue of Infante D. Henrique, on the riverside. Symbol of the end of the medieval era and the beginning of the Renaissance in Portugal.

and you will also leave with a deeper understanding of its cultural heritage.
