I am a big fan of small museums, stuff that can be walked through without huge crowds and without missing the good stuff. While I like the British Museum and Louvre, these small museums are my favorites. Sorolla is right up my alley, with excellent exhibits in the artist's house, and a fine collection of paintings.

Beautiful, small collection of paintings in Sorolla's former home. There are items from his studio and furnishings throughout the museum. If you like Impressionism, you will enjoy these paintings of life-filled with light.

It's not very near any metro stops but it was a pleasant walk from Gregorio Marañon and I also bought some new espadrilles on the way. The museum is basically a grand suburban villa full of Sorolla paintings and entry is very cheap. It was also pretty quiet at lunchtime and you can take no-flash photos. You see a profusion... More

If you haven't heard of Joaquín Sorolla before he was Spain's leading Impressionist, he was a specialist in portraits and landscapes particularly paintings of his family, beach and seaside scenery. A visit to his home, studio and garden is a true gem in Madrid. The museum is not located in the centre of Madrid but is easily accessed by metro... More

This small museum, showcasing the artist's work in the home where he and his family lived, is simply splendid. Uncrowded, well-organized, and beautiful, it's an easy ride on the #27 bus from the Prado. The Sorolla's portraits of his wife and children, members of the comfortable class, offer an interesting counterpoint to his depictions of the fishermen and their families... More

Staying in Chamberi

Neighborhood Profile
Chamberi
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighborhood 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.
