The Sorolla Museum preserves the original atmosphere of both home and study of the painter Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (Valencia, 1863 - Cercedilla, 1923). It houses the richest collection of his works, colourful paintings irradiating light and...more

I had visited this museum ten years ago and completely forgot I had come - right until I walked through the front gates and saw the distinctive garden. It's that type of a museum; you may not remember every detail but it is distinctive.
The Sorolla is an eye-opener. Set in the artist’s magnificent home on a broad boulevard, it is a combination of conventional residential architecture with the surprise of Andalusia garden designs. Simply beautiful everywhere you step.
The artwork on the walls is exceptional. If you appreciate...More
I will not go into the art, since it's wonderful. But nonetheless I will never ever recommend to anyone this atrocity simply because I would rather spend my money somewhere more deserving. If you have any problem with mobility, this is not a place where...More
Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida was a celebrated Spanish painter of the twentieth century. His luminous paintings, many in large formats, are a delight for the eye. His mastery of light, of the vibrant colors under the sharp Spanish sun, is unequalled. You want...More
After 2 exhausting days at the Prado and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, this is a lovely, relaxing respite. Meandering through an early 20th c. house hung with glorious carefree canvases is a treat. High on my list of Spanish recommendations!
My wife and I went to the Sorolla Museum to see the exhibition of paintings of Sorolla's gardens. This was a very beautiful exhibition, one of the best in this museum. I bought a book about the exhibition for 25 euros and am enjoying reading...More
Simply excellent, we have been twice and I would visit again on my next trip. If you appreciate art, this must not be missed. The paintings and home of Joaquín Sorolla are a joy and the gardens tranquill. 3 Euros entrance fee
Pequeño, acogedor y sorprendente. Asi es como yo lo definiria. Viviendo en madrid he tardado 40 en años en descubrirlo y considero que es una de las joyas de Madrid. Small, nice and surprising, that's what I think. I discover it, After 40 years living...More
A great spot for some low impact sightseeing and art: a small, friendly museum full of the work of an aesthete who painted some beautiful pictures. Even if you don't go in you should stop and have a rest in the front garden: one of...More
To view Sorolla's artwork in his home is mesmerising - this is not a museum as such but his home with its history and the family and his artwork beautifully presented even the little shop at the end is sweet. Take time to sit in...More
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighbourhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or
ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
