This was the star of a culture vulture few days in Madrid. Some breathtaking paintings by Sorolla. I knew about his amazing light and water paintings of which there is a profusion here, but was bowled over by the portraits and then particularly the great landscapes. Inspirational. Came home and got out my paints.

Loved visiting this one - Sorolla's paintings are fascinating - they have a good range of his work from portraits through to landscapes. His house is lovely and the gardens are perfect to sit in away from the noise of the city. Free entry for over 65's take ID withyou

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.

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.
