I am a late comer to appreciating the art of Sorolla. I first saw an exhibit of his work two years ago in Barcelona and immediately fell in love with his work. So, during our first full trip to Madrid, we made a visit to his home, and now museum, a must. This is a charming small museum that allows... More

This is a little museum where you spend an hour or so at a very nice setting. The house is great and the paintings are beautiful. A very nice place to see in Madrid.

This was the former home of Spanish artist Joaquin Sorolla. It's a beautiful house with a lovely patio with a fountain. Featuring many of the works of Spain's leading impressionist, it is a delightful place to spend an hour or two.

An oasis in a busy city. There are good paintings here but not his very best. However, the insight you get into his studio, house and garden as well as the items that inspired him is priceless. The house is wonderful and the garden cool and magnificent. Seniors with documentation get in free. The shop is well stocked with books... More

We loved this lovely villa with a great garden and all the art works. We did not like the lady who told us that we did not have enough time for the audio tour and would not rent it to us. Shouldn't we decide how we spend our money? Apart from that delightful and recommended.

I'd never heard of Sorolla, but my daughter said he was highly recommended by her Spanish teacher. The museum was enchanting, from the well kept garden, the tiles and original furniture to the insights his paintings give you into his family. Do get the audio guide. There is more interpretation than in some places, however the guide brought it to... More

This museum visit at the painter's former home and studio was a great way to round off my week's sightseeing trip to Madrid. The house and studio are festooned with both his works and personal effects. There are many depicting family members evidencing how important family was to him. Compare and contrast his depiction of light to that of Caravaggio,... 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.
