Lovely Portuguese ceramics shop at Lisbon’s fleamarket: ‘Armazém das Caldas’

The term “picanha” (pea-kan-yah) derives from the word “picana”, which was a pole used by ranchers in the southern parts of Portugal and Spain for herding cattle. This herding technique was then taken to Brazil by Portuguese emigrants and eventually the term “picanha” was adopted to refer to the part where the cow was poked by ranchers. Source: Wikipedia
