Had to queue for 30 minutes to get in. Would book in advance online next time. Well worth the €3! Its between 3 metros but a short walk once I got directions. The gift shop is small but very nice. I was delighted on visiting the Reina Sofia later that day to spot a Sorolla although I knew nothing about... More

I had never heard of Sorolla before this visit and loved his work. He was kind of a blending of John Singer Sergeant and Mary Cassat. The museum is in his home and you get a bit of an idea of how he lived, although the upstairs, where the bedrooms once were (I'm assuming) is now gallery space. Although I... More

Sorolla is one of my most favorite painters so while in Madrid I absolutely had to visit his home . I was not disappointed . It is a beautiful house filled with his paintings. For me being able to walk into his studio was especially moving. The gardens were gorgeous and if it had not been rainy I would have... More

Sorolla loved his family and his Spain, and his paintings relfect his great loves. His home and studio contain beautiful works by the artist. The garden is charming as well. Well worth a taxi drive if you are in Madrid for a few days.

Originally the painter's home and studio, the Museo Sorolla provides an insight into 19th century visual culture. You can walk about Sorolla's studio, private domains and stroll through the gardens. If it's near one pm, walk up José Abascal street a few blocks and turn left on Calle Ponzano. This side street is full of taverns and restaurants where you... More

Nice little museum with great art. Love that you can enter the artists house and get to know a little about his life too. My only complain is, that it can be too crowded, because it is so small.

Lovely, easy on the eye paintings somewhat impressionist in style, mostly of Mediterranean scenes ,portraits, children. Quite similar also to John Singer Sargent. All set in Sorolla's home surrounded by his possessions, his ceramic collection and surrounded by a beautiful box hedged Mediterranean knot garden.

The no.1 metro takes you to the Sorolla (about 6 stops from the centre) so don't be daunted by the trip - it's well worthwhile. When I visited only some of the rooms were available to visit as they were installing a new exhibition and the audio visual didn't correspond to the paintings. To be fair, the staff did warn...

This little charming museum is a great place where to spend some time, it is not a must-see and the location is not ideal but if you have the opportunity I recommend going.

Staying in Chamberi

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
