Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?

This place is a quiet and peaceful town where tourists can gather to take a walk or climb the stone. With a desertic climate sorrounded by exotic flora and fauna, as well as colorful houses and local business, this mysterious town has a charm that others should explore.

To be featured on social media as the Victorinox "Pick of the Day", please write a short statement about yourself (see more details in the brief).

My name is Montserrat Mendoza and I live in Queretaro, Mexico. I´ve chosen to design Peña de Bernal, because it´s a majestic town, which everyone should visit once in their lifetime.
I also believe that small villages should be visited and cared for, as part of fostering a healthy environment and a culture of inclusion in the world.
