Description:

The Sorolla Museum preserves the original atmosphere of both home and study...

The Sorolla Museum preserves the original atmosphere of both home and study of the painter Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (Valencia, 1863 - Cercedilla, 1923). It houses the richest collection of his works, colourful paintings irradiating light and vitality. It is one of the more complete and best preserved artist homes remaining in Europe. The garden, also designed by himself, is a beautiful oasis in the city.

A bit off the usual tourist path, but definitely worth a visit to discover this Andalusian gem of a house in the hearth of Madrid. With the wonderful patio and gardens, the house gives you a glimpse into the artists life and paintings. Check out the free entrance days and hours.

This is a quite small museum. An hour or so is sufficient. However it is fascinating and a very good experience. Highly recommended and an experience that does not leave you exhausted.

This was a lively way to spend the afternoon. It was small, but still very impressive. Not too big for kids to get bored.

It is a beautiful little museum with great paintings of Sorolla who captured like no other the beaches and sun in Valencia. Within an hour you have seen it and the place is a gem in the middle of Madrid.

Even if you are not aware about this great artist, you would like to visit this small museum, previously his house. Pictures full of light and reflecting Spain people and culture

...If you're one of the few who know Sorolla, then you don't need this review, and if you don't know him then you have a treat coming when you see this Spanish impressionist's glorious Valencian beach scenes, among others, in the entrancing museum that was his home. In Madrid don't miss this!

This is Sorolla's house. It has many of his paintings and house is preserved as it was. I like Sorolla's art. They are full of light and joy. The museum is very affordable, entrance fee is only 3 euros. House has a nice garden where you can seat and relax.

What a great surprise we had when we found out this little museum. It is located in the former house of Mr. Sorolla himself, filled with paintings, sculptures and furnitures. On the second floor, there is also an exhibition of pictures taken by one of his friend, so we can see how he was painting and leaving, simply great! On... 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.
