Unforgettable gem in Madrid

Extraordinary collection of works by master Spanish artist, Joaquin Sorolla, intimately displayed in artist's former residence. Extremely worthwhile!

My husband planned the day so I had no expectation or knowledge of Joaquín Sorolla. Wow,what a treat. Knocks Monet off the perch for me. The temporary exhibition was also a touring Sorolla exhibition curated by a family member, sensational. Each room has great explanation cards in multiple languages which were very useful. I am his newest fan so will... More

I first learned about Sorrolla in Valencia. I think he's my latest favorite artist. The museum is full of portraits, seascapes and other Sorrolla masterpieces. His art will delight both lovers of Impressionism and portraiture.The museum is housed in his Madrid home which a treat to see in and of itself. I loved being in his studio. Every painter should...

As my title suggests, it is well worth visiting the Valencian artist who,lived in Madrid for a peroid of his life whilst painting some of his finer pieces. The home is still decorated with hairlooms. There is a beautiful garden with trees, fountains, statues amd a seating area. The old are catered for as well as wheelchair bound patrons. There... More

Close to Paseo Castellana, the street that cross Madrid from South to North, this gallery is located in a quiet house with garden. A quiet and pacific place to visit. Sorolla is the main painter of spanish impressionism. Landscapes and family scenes dominated by mediterranean light. Surprising.

Look at the paintings and the house! One of the most renowned 19th cent. painter. The light, the air, the water, the eyes, the painted signs of the common life of the painted personnages, the floating white clothes are superb.

I went on a Saturday afternoon when it was free entrance and it turned out to be a great decision. Sorolla is very famous within Spain and this is an opportunity to visit his home and studio as well as view some of his paintings. The gardens around the house are worth the visit on their own as laid out... More

An unusual combination of the artist's home and his paintings that I really enjoyed. The development of his style and use of light and place in the art world were all covered well by the plastic guide cards in each room as well as the narrative pieces on the walls. All were in Spanish and English - and I think,... More

What a surprise. The museum is an absolute delight. A little off the beaten track but well worth the diversion. Filled with his pictures but still homely with Tiffany lamps in the main rooms. And,goodness, the man could paint.

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.
