My friend, senior and lovely lady feel so disapointed when couldn't visit the Sorolla House that we couldn't believe! Such an important city Madrid, such a museum belonging to the Culture Minister... that even didn't ask about ramps or lifts... as we supposed they got but.. don't! Even a nice staff woman explained that even his father never could visit... More

Great curation. Great Space. Set up very close to what actually the house was during the lifetime of the painter. Makes you feel like you could actually see Sorolla come in any minute.

Lovers of impressionism and plein aire colorists will be delighted with the discovery of the Sorolla Museum. Joaquin Sorolla's fame has somehow slipped on the international stage but his skill as a painter, the exquisite paintings of his family, his pencil drawings and small paintings on cards, wood, etc. demonstrate a skill that is equal to Cassat or others known...

This was Joaquim Sorolla's residence. It is well preserved and the entrance fee is quite cost effective. One can see many excellent works of Sorolla, as well as the luxurious housing. It is situated in a residential area. However you get to the museum, the journey there will also give you a sense of a true Madrileño neighborhood.

Great for and Hour visit. Really inexpensive...only 3 euro. Beautiful home of Sorolla. If you like impressionists, you will love his work. Don't expect the Prado, but you will leave uplifted by the beauty of his art. I recommend it.

Sorolla is a very good but lesser known Spanish artists and this museum was his home and studio making it a very good starting point to look at him. It is also an oasis in the middle of the city.

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.
