I was completely surprised by how beautiful this museum is. Everything is arranged so beautifully, and it is such a joy to walk through the rooms and see all of these beautiful paintings in the places where they were hung by the artist himself. The museum itself is a work of art and well worth a visit. Do not hesitate... More

It's always cool to see where creators lived. This is a small museum, it could take you 20 min - 1 hour depending on your pace. Beautiful garden that you could hang out in before/after visit. Lockers to store bags and purses while you visit. TIP!!! Free after 5pm!!!

I visited twice and enjoyed it both times. The best bit is perhaps that you are walking around such a lovely Madrid home with a lovely garden. I must say that the first time I visited in 2015 I was on crutches and staff were not very helpful. I had a small handbag on my back as I couldn't carry... More

Off course, there are wonderful 3 main big museums in Madrid, but if you like more compact one, desiccated to an artist who lived and painted in the house, this is the place. Small but impressive.

I am very happy to know this artist from this trip to Madrid! It has been several weeks that we left Madrid and I can vividly remember Sorolla's paintings, but not many others in big museums. What a finding! If you like Sorolla's painting style, you'll love this place. However, I didn't know his paintings at all before! Small house... More

Never heard of SOrolla before we went to Madrid, but so glad I got to know his art. So beautiful and the museum was also the home for the corolla family. But why doesn't any staff speak english? Or any other lounges tha Spanish?

Sorolla was a brilliant Spanish impressionist who was extremely popular in his day even in the US. His home and studio are now a museum housing some of his best works. After the Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia, this should be the next stop on your museum tour

This is a lovely museum if you feel like further exploring Madrid beyond the typical tourist attractions. The museum is in what once was the artist's home, with some of the original furniture still there. The museum gardens are beautiful. Entrance is free on certain days (I think I went on a Saturday).

Just returned from a return trip to the Sorolla museum in Madrid. What a treat. It was just as I remembered--you enter through a lovely garden and feel what it would have been like to have lived and painted in that house. The collection of paintings by Sorolla is my favorite compilation of his work. You can feel the breezes,... 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.
