A beautiful home and garden, studio and museum tribute to Sorolla. I would like to have had dinner with him and his family in the charming dining room with borders painted by him and including his family. Such beautiful soulful painting. This place let's you know who he is and helps you understand his amazing light filled paintings.

I like the guided visit. The rooms and the paintings and the sculptures (his sister's) are very nice. The house is mantained as it was. The Garden is nice. It is not crwded.

If you like realism and landscapes, the Sorolla museum is a wonderful, manageable museum. Unlike the huge size of the famous museums in Madrid like Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen, this museum is a small museum which is actually the house Sorolla used to live in. So not only do you get to see his artwork, you also get to... More

It is a beautiful place with charming museum. The paintings of Sorolla are absolutely amazing. If you love impressionists this is a place to go.

We went here on the last day of our five day trip to Madrid and it was a great way to end what was essentially a cultural feast. Unlike the, most-visited large, museums, the Sorolla is based in,what was , the artist's home and what a beautiful home it must have been to live in. As it is, seeing the... More

This was an interesting excursion a little way out from the centre, but was easy to get to. As others have said, it's a nice change from the huge galleries for which Madrid is famous, and the way it is presented is lovely, with the studio set up as he would have had it, and paintings of his family adorning...

The city of Madrid offers some of the best art museums in the world. On a grand scale there are collections like the Prado,the Sophia and the Thyssen (all worth visiting without a doubt). On a smaller and more personal scale, there are little jewels like the Sorolla. If you could imagine being invited for an afternoon to the home... More

I can't even remember how much we paid to get into the museum (3 euros each?) but it is great value to see this wonderful artists house and paintings in a part of Madrid you would not expect to have such a treasure. You will probably only need an hour or so in the Museum but is worth the trip.

I really loved the little garden outside of the museum. The gallery with pictures from the Sorolla musical was also a big highlight!

It's a very small and charming museum. The Sorolla spirit is everywhere. There are not tons of paintings from him but a good representation of his style and art.

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.
