Home of the artist Joaquim Sorolla. This is a small not so known museum. A nice garden and a beautiful collection of Sorolla's artworks and ceramics.

This museum, in the home of the artist Joaquim Sorolla, is a perfect jewel. The garden and the house itself are delights. His collection of ceramics and bronze sculptures are beautiful. And his paintings!!! He truly was the master of light. If you only go to one museum in Madrid, this is it. You will never grudge the €3 entrance... More

Sorolla's home was also his studio and it is now a small museum with a wonderful collection of his paintings. A recent refurbishment has made it easier to see the permanent exhibition and has opened up more of the building. The patio garden inspired by the gardens of the Alhambra is a wonderful place to sit. For anyone who likes... More

Small but nice museum with gorgeous garden. Not conveniently placed but worth the walk or ride. Good insight into Sorolla's life.

I have been to Sorolla's home/ museum several times and find it charming. Sorolla was Spain's most famous impressionist artist. This museum was his home, and visitors can explore his workshop, which still contains his paints, brushes, etc. Purchase some prints of his seaside scenes. I did. Walk in his garden with mosaic walkways. You'll enjoy this museum.

This museum was close to my hotel so I took a quick stroll over. The walk was lovely from the Hotel Santo Mauro. The garden around the museum was a nice little retreat in and of itself. I didn't have much time to explore but truly enjoyed what I did see.

We enjoyed the Sorolla Museum very much. We were not familiar with Sorolla's work before visiting Madrid but are glad we had the opportunity to do so. The museum is in his former home. His large studio is appears as if he had just left the room. His paint box and collection of brushes are displayed as if he were... More

I read about this in my Rick Steeves book - not only is this an amazing hidden gem, it is in a nice neighborhood, out of the way from downtown, but easy to get to - and, it was in our backyard area of the Intercontinental Hotel, so that was a plus, in the business district. Wow. This place is... More

What a special museum; it is a slice of this magnificent painter and his family's life. I was so taken with this place that I viewed it twice!

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.
