As a Brit, and I thought of myself as an art lover, I had never heard of Sorolla until a trip to Paris about 8 years ago. So when we were in Madrid, we just had to visit this place. We were not disappointed - a small museum, but lots to see, wonderful paintings, and the chance to learn much... More

The museum is small and was a bit out of our way but I really wanted to see his work. It was well worth the trip. The paintings are really great.

Very small museum. Sorolla's painting of subjects on the beach was what he is famous for. There are only a few such paintings in the museum. When we were there, the upper floor was close and there was no warning in the entrance or when I bought the ticket and audioguide. The garden and sorolla's paintings are certainly worth the... More

This gallery was ecommerce do to me by a friend and we went to a great deal of trouble finding it in a very hot day. It was, for us, a disappointment. The house itself is worth a look and the garden was cool and refreshing, but I'm afraid Sorolla's style is not one that we enjoy. I suggest that... More

Sorolla, spanish artist of the XIX-XX centuries, was famous for his flying brushstrokes, impressive sense of light, and the taste for good living. Thus what you see on his paintings, mainly are beautiful landscapes, pretty women and children, sea-side, and his beautiful and clever wife (she also was his accountant, manager, model, and the mother of his children). Moreover, the... More

Housed in the artists house/studio, the building feels like a 19th century beach villa. Lovely sheltered garden. Artist impressionistic in style, lots of women in white dresses on sunny beaches and children.

The Master of Light, Sorolla was a genius: his ability to capture the twinkling light of moving water needs to be seen to be believed and the house designed for his wife and family is Ro die foe.

Though we Americans were not familiar with the Spanish impressionist Sorolla, he was much admired by royalty and the people alike. The home gives photographic and painted glimpses of royal patrons, his adored wife and children, his life. His studio still includes his painting tools. The patio is charming. Well worth a visit.

Tucked awai in a sidestreet near the Intercontinental Hotel, this is a gem of a small museum. Originally the house of the Spanish Impressionist painter Sorolla, the museum contains a comprehensive collection of his major work as well as his own collection of ceramics and objet d' art. The wonderful small garden with mature trees, fountains and sculptures is the... More

Well, more like an hour and a half, if you count the time spent in the gift shop. Wonderful paintings in the setting of Sorolla's own house with its original furnishings. Also amazing andaluzian ceramics, both pieces in the basement and tiles in the courtyard and garden. There could have been more information displayed about the contents of each room.... More

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.
