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 a small gem of a museum showcasing the work of the.master painter Joaquin Sorolla who lived and worked in this magnificent mansion. The opportunity to visit his painting studio is a rare treat, you can well imagine him working on a canvas bathed in beautiful light. The collection is impressive, his most famous works are on display. The mansion... More

The museum submits the life of Joaquin Sorolla. He was an Impressionist from the city of Valencia and his former studio-mansion in Madrid has been converted into a museum reproducing perfectly a typical early 20th century house. The villa is very nice orgenized with Soromma work and colection of ceramica. Small museum you can visit in one hour.

Enjoy the paintings and the setting. This is a small museum, the home of Sorolla, the painter of Mediterranean light. He lived here, and you'll understand his love for the house. Think Sergeant in a southern European self.

Mean while most of the art museum are just galleries, this is a house. A beautiful one. Begining with a cozy garden and continuing to rooms full of gorgeous paintings. The paintings are so colorful and bright I hope rejoice yours spirit like happened to me.

If you like impressionism, or Sargent, or the Belle Epoque, or merely getting a feel of life in a household of what would pass for the Spanish high bourgeois, this little museum is a delightful part of a long visit to Madrid. It's not far off the musuem path, but it's in the rather faceless Castellana area. Easy to get... More

I think that Sorolla should have a much higher profile than he does - He is on a par with Degas or Van Gogh. This is a brilliant museum - If you like aret don't miss it. His use of colour and light in his sea-scapes is incredible

Queue to get in was totally worth the wait if you love Sorolla's work. We left at about 2pm and the queue was totally gone so maybe that's a better time to arrive. Gorgeous gardens also. Lots of good spots for a menú del dia on the way back to the metro :)

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.
