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.

“Breathtaking!”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

The museum is in Sorolla's house. Most of it is left as it was when he lived there (even his paint and paintbrushes!). You almost feel as if you have been invited to lunch and that he will appear with a glass of wine for you! The house and the garden are lovely, no need to describe his wonderful paintings... I don't understand why this museum is not so well-known, but all the better for us; we were able to admire his work in peace and quiet without being rushed. Entry fee is €3,00 which made it the best value for money museum I visited during my 10 day tour of Spain! Don't miss it!

“Nice, pleasant, far from the fussy center”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

A very pleasant descovery in Madrid, imperrionists paintings of Sorolla definitely fill you with joy and easiness, the parc outside the museum is very pleasant being designed bu the artist himself according to ancient Arabian gardens with a lot of fontains and plants. No rush, no crowds, just emotions and joy

“A Different Kind of Art Gallery”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

If you like Sorolla's art then to come and visit his house is something of a pilgrimage. You get a sense of the man that a touring exhibition could never give you. Any art lover would benefit from wandering around here.
