Approaching this elegant house, you’re possessed by a sudden tranquillity. Everything just blends so perfectly into everything else. This was early 20th century painter Sorolla’s home, where he drew quite a bit of his post-impressionism work. The painting galleries are stunning – you’ll find yourself wondering why you haven’t heard of this man before. Walking through, you’ll be seeing the house decorated as it was in the days when the artists lived here. The studio is a particular favourite of tourists, and I’ll bet you’ll leave with many ideas of what your own studio might one day look like.

I love this place! Been four times now and still enjoy it. Sorolla was a master, not as well known outside of Spain as he deserves to be, does lovely things with light and water. And there is always a sense of love and care for people in his work. The house is gorgeous, so nice to see a traditional Spanish home. Cheap as chips to get in, too. Oh! and the garden is a delight, shame about the traffic noise.
The house is a small but we'll designed mansion that Sorolla built to suit his family and his profession as a painter. He designed it so he could use as a canvass and it appears in much of his work, particularly in his later years. Then it is decorated with his own art acquisitions, including floor and wall tiles, as well as many of his paintings. They also exhibit sketches he created to depict how the house should be built. We just loved the house, the gardens, and the art work, all if which had Sorolla hand in their creation.
Had enjoyed sorolla garden painting exhibition on Valencia in February, so was very interested to see his home and garden myself. Got the audio guide and it was a great addition to the experience. Very good to get up close to his great pictures. The garden was smaller thank expected but looked lovely when sun came out as I left the house.
This is my favourite museum in Madrid. Don't understand why it is not more promoted like the Prado, or Thyssen. Joaquin Sorolla was a superb artist; a master at conveying air, water, & light movement. The museum was his home, surrounded by a beautiful garden. NOT TO BE MISSED.
A delightful museum, full of wonderful paintings by and belongings of Sorolla. There is a beautiful garden to relax in as well. A little gem in the middle Madrid. Come and look, even if, like me, you have not heard of the artist. You will be impressed.
