we discovered Sorolla when visiting the Prada. This great painter was surprisingly unknown to my husband and I. We were both really impressed by his style and compositions. We fell into the museum by chance a very unassuming entrance into a gorgeous garden and stunning house. What an amazingly industrious painter. A great atmosphere and wonderful house beautifully presented. The... More

Some really beautiful grande paintings and walldecoration in this villa, the former home of painter Joaquin Sorolla. The Andalusian type of garden nice as well!

An amazing tour of Sorolla's home and studio, with all the original furniture and, what's more, the most important pieces of his stunning work. Huge canvasas in his impressionist style will leave the visitor thrilled with his playful themes on the beach and lovely portraits of family members. Intimate wonderful museum!

I loved Museo Sorolla, this is a man who immortalised his family in his art so well. The rooms display his works amazingly well, such a good relaxing atmosphere that you forget you are in a museum. A beautiful place inside and out, the garden is lovely too. His seaside works such as Ninas en el mar are timeless. A... More

This museum is in Sorolla's house and provides a real insight into his life. His paintbrushes remain in their pots 'ready'. His paintings of sunlight and sea shore locations are inspirational.

I loved our time spent at Sorolla. The Museum is located within his home, which is surrounded by three Andalucían-styled courtyards for you to relax in before and after your visit. The art is absolutely beautiful and refreshing. Brief posts in each room allow you to learn about the artist and his background as you go, and they are in... More

This museum is a hidden gem. The crowds are small and the artwork is fantastic. Don't miss this museum if you like Sorolla's work.

We were so pleased we visited the Museo Sorolla, on recommendation from friends. The art itself is very interesting and also good to see the artist's studio. The garden is a delight. Really recommend this attraction. We visited at the weekend when there was no admission fee - a bonus, but do check latest info on when this applies.

The Museo Sorolla is the house built in 1911 for the painter Joaquin Sorolla who painted lovely light filled portraits and landscapes. Like his paintings, the house is filled with light streaming in from large windows on the ouside of the house as well as from a central courtyard. The artist's studio has been preserved for the most part as... 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.
