  • Always nice to see the House Museum of the painter Sorolla and contain his works also has its furniture: it is a House with a small and very cosy garden. His bright and Mediterranean works worth a visit: there are also several sculptures of interest of himself and his family. Highly recommended. They are now preparing an exhibition so some rooms are closed.

  • Beautiful house-museum with gardens inspired on the Alcázar de Sevilla. Sorolla is an artist that can transport you to a happy place without much effort, the flow of the brushes and the ocean side theme is just spectacular. A hidden jewel in Madrid.
  • Fantastic small museum. Put it on the top of your list. Audio guide recommended.
  • Amazing paintings from the early 1900s, by a well known Spanish painter. A definite must-visit, and off the beaten path.
  • Small but a must if you are in Madrid and you are interested in the works of this great artist. The map provided with the ticket offers limited information (enough for a quick tour) but if you want to make the most out of your visit you may want to pay for a guided tour (recommended).
  • Wonderful house of a wealthy family from beginning of 20th century. House is fully mobilated with original furniture. It gives the visitor not only a glimp into the painter's work, but also into his private home. Also the garden is a perfect place to visit and relax. Highly recommended for a visit!
