Sorolla's museum is quite interesting as you are able to see his paintings as well as his house and many of his possessions. It allows you to get to know the artist's life much better. The visit shouldn't take too long. I truly recommend it

Reminds me of the Frick or the Gardner museums because it is a house. You do not need to know much about Sorolla to enjoy yourself. Lovely.

Metro: Ruben Dario Went on a Saturday afternoon at 2pm. Surprised to learn entrance was free after 2pm! Then it turned out to be a very nice house, garden, religious items and museum! So very happy! Honestly, I've never heard of Joaquin Sorolla before today but so glad to have seen his work and be remembered. How very generous of... More

A lovely house museum full of wonderful personal paintings and home memorabilia. I am not a knowledgeable person in regard to painters their styles and influences but this did little to detract from my enjoyment of this delightful museum. 3 euros to enter - an absolute bargain. Thoroughly recommend.

This is a must, a lovely home of the Valencian artist Jaoquin Sorolla, which is also home to some of his most famous paintings and they are beautiful to see up close. There is a lovely little courtyard where you can sit and take in the world. Doesn't feel like you are in Madrid!

Madrid is full of museums but if you like Sorolla this is the place to see this magnificent painter's works of art.This was his home which has been converted into the present day museum. The garden, the house and how they have set up the museum is perfect to view Sorolla's collection of ceramic, personal effects and in his studio,... More

Beautiful museum which used to be the artist's house. It is not just 'another' museum, you can feel the presence of the artist through his paintings, his personal objects and his lovely garden.It really worths a visit!

The Joaquin Sorolla Museum is a beautiful intimate museum showcasing the work of the foremost Spanish Impressionist painter in his family home and studio. The Prado and the Reina Sophia Museums are wonderful but they are huge. The Joaquin Sorolla Museum is small, an hour is sufficient for a visit but you may want to linger in the lovely garden....

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.
