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.

A beautiful little place in Madrid. The interior has a great collection by a very underrated Spanish painter. It also contains preserved rooms of his family home and objects from his studio. It is a very well maintained home and his work is displayed beautifully. The exterior garden nearly steals the show, however. It is a small oasis designed in an Adalusian style. A perfect place to take pictures. The staff was very friendly and a visit will only cost you 3 euro. It is free on Saturday afternoons. I recommend visiting on the weekdays though, because it can get quite busy on the weekend.

The Sorolla Museum not only has a vast collection of the artist's work, but it is located in the home of Sorolla, to give a further glimpse into his life. The museum is beautifully designed, and is in a lovely neighborhood in Madrid. It is definitely worth a visit.

Sorolla’s art is really accessible for the non-artsy types, and this collection is housed in what was his own residence and studio, which adds a really interesting historical element to the visit. It’s not huge and ticket prices are reasonable, which makes it even more doable with children and those who can’t be on their feet for too long. Highly recommended!

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
