Inma Serrano in the Centro de Portugal
Living very close to the border, in Huelva, Inma had already been in Portugal several times. As a child she often went with her family to Vila Real de Santo António. Later on she spent an unforgettable holiday with a friend in Lisbon and more recently travelled the country from north to south, where she was enchanted by little discoveries in the interior of the country.
She remembers many moments of the Sketch Tour in the Centro de Portugal with special affection. The light and the colour of the market of Caldas da Rainha, birthplace of her friend and host Nelson, the charm of Óbidos, the sound of the sea and the weight of history in Peniche, the cafés, the fabulous Convent of Christ and Mosteiro de Alcobaça. It was a real pleasure to visit and sketch the Centro de Portugal.
