Coach of Queen Carlota Joaquina

It was part of a set of three vehicles brought to Portugal in 1785 by Queen Carlota Joaquina of Bourbon, daughter of Carlos IV of Spain, at the time of her marriage to Prince João who later became King João VI. Although it was built during the baroque period, it retains the body of the Spanish coaches of the 17th century.
