Hi Vicent,

I suggest using the graphic primitive Line in the Epilog part of the 
Plot command so you can easily control attributes such as color or 
thickness for each of the lines or points you wish to emphasize. For 
instance,

In[1]:=
Plot[(x - 1)^2, {x, -1, 3},
   Epilog -> {Red, Thickness[0.02], Line[{{1, 0}, {1, 4}}]}]

Regards,
Jean-Marc
