A visit to the Sorolla Museum in Madrid is well worth it. The museum is the home if the artist Sorolla who painted in the early 1900s. The house itself is set in a peaceful and idyllic garden. Sorolla was an impressionist artist and in many of his artworks captured the real essence of light.

We first discovered Sorella in Venice at Easter , and loved the one example of his work there, so were delighted to find this museum - his home and studio in fact -in Madrid. He is an Impressionist and his paintings are purely sunshine and joy in white features prominently . Google him and see for yourself. We visited during... More

If you are a fan of this relatively unknown artist, then by all means visit his home/museum, but if your time is limited in Madrid, you should think hard about visiting, even despite its high TripAdvisor ranking, because to my mind there are many other things you should prioritize ahead of this place. Being so close to the fabulous Lazaro... More

We are so glad we did not miss visiting the Sorolla Museum while in Madrid, as it was the highlight of my time in the city! If you like the Impressionists, you will like Sorolla! I had not heard of him prior to researching activities in Madrid, but he ranks with the best of the Impresstionists! The fact that you... More

Not breath taking enough to travel far for with exeptions of those with particular art interests. Beautiful though so do stop by if you are in the close neighborhood.

You must spend time here taking the wonderful feeling of a comfortable secure family environment where Soralla lived. The house is quite accessible on foot , just get a good map and follow from the closest train station. Gardens and relaxing and the furniture and furnishings are just as interesting as the paintings. A must for all.

Jacquin Sorolla's home is the location of the museum. I learned that Senor Sorolla enjoyed nature and it was very clear from the numerous, beautiful gardens that surrounded his home that this was true. The collection is beautiful and we enjoyed it very much!

Well worth seeing in Madrid. Gorgeous Andalusian patio, beautiful impressionist paintings. Everything the way it was left back in early 1900's. Take a bus...

After attending a Sorolla exhibit recently at the San Diego Museum of Art I was really excited to see this museum. Unfortunately it played a lot more like a family album than a greatest works package. Almost all of the art here was focused on Sorolla's wife and children. None of the emotional works or portraits of famous people he's... More
