Owner description: 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 vitality. It is one of the more complete and best preserved artist homes remaining in Europe. The garden, also designed by himself, is a beautiful oasis in the city.

This is the house where Sorolla lived and worked and the house and furniture are also worth the visit. Sorolla was a contemporary and friend of Singer Sergeant and probably a better painter, although not so well known outside Spain. The several portraits of his wife are masterful and the upper floor has a temporary exhibition of his work. Never crowded. a pleasure to visit

An absolute gem. Beautiful house and studio, You get a true feel as how artist and his family lived. Go early as later there may be a line to get in.

It houses the work of this painter. There are a couple of large airy rooms initially displaying his work including his former studio. The paintings are good and give the impression (as opposed to earlier painters) that Spain is after all in the Mediterranean climate and light. After that there are some rooms in his residence furnished as they were in his time. On the top floor are temporary exhibits.
