Many studies show the close relationship that exists between text and illustration. In the case of travel literature, this relationship is much closer, as for most of the authors whose work is related to travel literature, illustration is as necessary as the text in order to convey to the reader the reality that they have experienced far home. In many cases, it was the writer who illustrated the book, but on other occasions 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. This paper tries to emphasize how special this traveler is, because she is still one of those many forgotten, ignored and silence 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.
