This is one of those small delights you get occasionally. Intimate family collection (sort of reminded me of the Gardner in Boston). Was unfamiliar with his works, but quite enjoyed the collection. There's a large portrait of his wife that I found exquisite. For antiques roadshow nuts, don't miss the multiple matching Tiffany ceiling light fixtures...off the scale, I guess.... More

Sorolla is known for his paintings full of Mediterranean light and the blue of the sea. The museum is in his house and includes his atelier.

We all know Joaquin Sorolla is a major artist, or so we think... until we visit his museum in Madrid. Now, imagine. One of the world's best artist's wife bequeath his home/workshop, paintings (200+) furniture and art collection to the Spanish state... So, when you visit the museum, you turn the clock back about 100 years, Sorolla died in 1923,... More

We visited the Museum with the kids and was quite interesting. They have many paintings but not too many. I like the small patio and the atmosphere. I love it.

Not an artist I'm familiar with - that list is a long one - but his use of light in his paintings is marvellous. And his clear devotion to his wife and children, the sea side where they clearly spent a lot of time, the small warm things of life - moving. Plus it's a lovely little museum - though... More

We visited 3 museums in former homes. Of these, Museo Sorolla was the best. You enter from a beautiful garden, reminiscent of the Moorish gardens of Alhambra. Step into a lovely home, not a museum, complete with studio, dining, living and sitting areas. All are furnished with pieces from the Sorolla family. Best of all, the painter's gorgeous canvases hang... More

I can thank Trip Advisor for directing me to this wonderful cloistered respite in the Chamberi area of Madrid. Sorolla's home and studio offer one insight into a private existence which one can immediately sense was spent happily with the family and wife (his muse Clothide) which he adored. Sorolla was an artist known for his ability to quickly capture... More

although on a very busy street in Madrid, the garden and the courtyards within the walls make it a peaceful spot - even when a school trip was visiting. Very interesting museum - not a name I knew but did recognize some of the paintings. Plenty of information available without being overloaded with detail.

Actually my favorite little gem in Madrid. Small but packs a big punch. His works range from realist to impressionist. His fascination with his family are a treat to see and his beach scenes are calming. Add all of that to getting to walk through his gorgeous mansion, see his studio, and walk through the garden. A secret treat. Top... More

Staying in Chamberi

Neighborhood Profile
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.
