Photographer's Note

The National Coach Museum houses and exhibits, under an exquisite ambiance of the old Royal Riding Arena of Belm Palace, a wonderful collection of 16th -19th Century royal horse-drawn carriages.

In the picture we can see the magnificent back detail of the "Embassy coach to Pope Clement XI" a 18th Century (1716)triumphal vehicle. Dim: 720x255x337 cm

The rear sculptural group represents the connection of the Atlantic Ocean to the Indian Ocean, discovered by Portuguese navigators in 15th Century, an episode in Portuguese maritime history glorified by Apollo.

The museum also displays the clothing and uniforms of the drivers, harnesses, and hunting saddles.

And yes!! You can take all the pictures you want!!!!!!

It is the only museum of this kind in Europe! You cant miss it.
