This is a carriage whose usual use was to go to the park, although it has other uses, since the most luxurious models are usually seen in large ceremonies and there is also a mode of travel. Those for city and park have the simplest suspensión of four springs; those for ceremony go on eight piers (sopandas); and those for trips on axles, front set and springs in mail-coach type. It is a carriage that must always be hooked at least to the trunk, although those for ceremony and travel can go with more horses. Its origin is from the German city of Landau, where its use began and hence its name. Its hood can be opened through the center of the roof and folds in half, forwards and backwards. The door panes can be raised and lowered inside the door panels when closed.
