Many studies show the close relationship that exists between text and illustration. In case of travel literature, this relationship is much closer, because for most of the authors of this type of literature, illustration is as necessary as the text to convey to the reader that wonderful reality that they have experienced far home. On many occasions it was the writer who illustrated the book, but on others the writer commissioned the work to a professional illustrator. The case of Louisa Tenison catches our attention, given that, despite being a drawer, she orders the illustrations that depict figures to a professional illustrator while landscapes belong to her own sketches. For our research work, it is important to emphasize how special this traveler is, because she is still one of those many forgotten ones and who also not only wrote what she saw but also drew it. With this work we intend to describe the author's need to capture both with words and with strokes her experience in Andalusia
