If you have been to many galleries, and might be getting a bit jaded or even bored of endless rooms of paintings as I was, go here. You get to wander through the artists house, and sit in his garden. And stand in his studio and feel the light he painted in. It is also a sweet sanctuary and break... More

What a pretty little museum. A wonderful oasis in the city. A water garden where you can sit in the cool. The museum itself is stuffed full of his art and is so pretty . It really is a wonderful place to visit after you have done all those larger museums. A bit of a long walk from the city... More

I was introduced to Sorolla on this trip and went to this museum in his own house, what a gem. The garden is a haven.

Not a usual stop. Sorolla was a successful Madrid artist and this was his home. Get a glimpse of how he lived.

Amazing place, should be extend the rating scale to 10 to include this museum. Like the David collection in Copenhagen, this small museum only shows pieces with soul. Atmosphere is so intense and filled with extraordinary experiences. I almost give up my minimalistic Scandinavian lifestyle, longing for all the colorful decorations. This is an oasis not only in the busy... More

This museum is really worth visiting if you are interested in impressionist art. It is a villa where the painter lived and worked and you can see his life style. The museum is surrounded by a beautiful garden.

Sorolla's beautiful house and plenty of paintings that resemble Danish Skagen school or American impressionist. Beautiful!

Sorolla is an excellent painter and his work is worth the trip. The setting, the house of the painter is very nice but It would be good to improve accessibility for disabled people.
