The Sorolla Museum preserves the original atmosphere of both home and study of the painter Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (Valencia, 1863 - Cercedilla, 1923). It houses the richest collection of his works, colourful paintings irradiating light and vitality. It is one of the more complete and best preserved artist homes remaining in Europe. The garden, also designed by himself, is a beautiful oasis in the city.

...If you're one of the few who know Sorolla, then you don't need this review, and if you don't know him then you have a treat coming when you see this Spanish impressionist's glorious Valencian beach scenes, among others, in the entrancing museum that was his home. In Madrid don't miss this!

This is Sorolla's house. It has many of his paintings and house is preserved as it was. I like Sorolla's art. They are full of light and joy. The museum is very affordable, entrance fee is only 3 euros. House has a nice garden where you can seat and relax.

What a great surprise we had when we found out this little museum. It is located in the former house of Mr. Sorolla himself, filled with paintings, sculptures and furnitures. On the second floor, there is also an exhibition of pictures taken by one of his friend, so we can see how he was painting and leaving, simply great! On... More

The Museo Soralla is one of the jewels in the art crown of Madrid! It is an incredibly modest amount to go into the house which was Sorolla's own home and 'work place' and the exhibits change regularly with special exhibitions. It is a simple place to visit by bus and we would never go to Madrid without making a... More

This museum, the home of Sorolla and his family, isn't a gem just because of its collection but also because of its compact size and clear focus - a bit of a relief after the mammoth collections of the Prado and Thyssen, wonderful as they are!

Tiny but with a lot to enjoy and learn. Aside of visiting the house and seeing his work, i was amazed with the photography exhibition documenting his life. Completely worth it!

Near Paseo de la Castellana, this beautiful house/museum, was the place of residence/ studio of the spanish (from Valencia) painter Joaquin Sorolla. Called the painter of the 'LIGHT' his work is beautifully displayed. There are other antique pieces and photographs. Worth a visit!

Most people have heard of Jon Singer Sargeant but a lot of people don't know of Sorolla who was working at the same period. His house and studio show a wonderful collection of his work and convey some of the atmosphere of what was his home . His paintings are superb. The house is set in pretty formal garden.

Staying in Chamberi

Neighbourhood Profile
Chamberi
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighbourhood 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.
