Description:

The Sorolla Museum preserves the original atmosphere of both home and study...

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.

I am embarrassed to admit to not knowing about Sorolla until coming to Madrid where his works are in many of the major Galleries as well as on souvenir stalls on the streets. This museum is a joy. In August '14 it cost just €3 to go in and you can enjoy the delightful garden and fountains for free, but... More

Not as popular as the large museums but equally beautiful, if you have time for a visit you won't regret it.

The home of the artist is now a museum with many of his best works. It provides insight into his working environment, taste in decor and the world he inhabited in pre-civil war Madrid. The house itself is worth the visit. But the main works are an epitome of Sorolla's work.

Worth the journey outside of the Madrid centre to visit this brilliant artists residence. Superbly laid out interior and lovely peaceful gardens. Visit the Prado to see more of Sorolla's works. Free on a Sunday afternoon. Would have paid without question. Make the effort you wont regret it.

Sorolla's house and gardens, were kept extremely well. You'll be able to see some of his best paintings and the wonderful art collection of the family. They also have temporary exhibitions on the second floor. Very helpful and friendly staff. If you only have time for one museum in Madrid, this is definetely it!!!

My friend told me about this small museum which was originally the artist's house and displays his paintings. There is a small shop with prints at reasonable prices. Taking photographs is allowed which is quite unusual. The small garden is lovely and tranquil, shame there is no coffee shop. It is quite small so takes less than an hour to... More

Those who know what they want, they KNOW. People take their time to fill the boxes and TRIP ADVIISOR now wants MORE. I do not think so.

This small museum is well worth a visit. The museum is the former home of the artist and his family and most of the house has been left as it was in his day - particularly his studio. It's fascinating to see it, and the walls are covered in his work, which I particularly enjoy. There's a good audio guide... More

We visited the Sorolla museum for the second time this past July. The museum is beautiful and an unexpected serene treasure behind walls in bustling Madrid. Our guide was helpful and informative and we enjoyed his expert commentary. Would highly recommend.

Staying in Chamberi

Neighbourhood Profile
Chamberi
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.
