  • Superb museum! If impressionists are among your favorite painters you have to visit Sorolla where he lived with his family. Beautiful house full of great paintings and surrounded by peaceful gardens where apprentices try hard everyday to become the next great Spanish painter. I highly recommend to treat yourself with this experience. I believe that you won't regret it
  • The museum is his home. It is so intimate and warm. Not to mention free! The courtyards are lovely too. Stocked with beautiful paintings and sculptures, as well as antique furniture.
  • I saw the Sorolla exhibition in London and was really excited to come here. Absolutely beautiful exhibition put together with so much love. And on Sunday it was free!
  • Excellent House - Museum of Spanish painter Sorolla. Painter was very productive and has lots of paintings. The family donated this Museum to the Spanish State, so all Sorolla's art pieces, furniture and other objects would not be disperse. A must see when touring Madrid.
  • Definitely come here to see beautiful architecture and art. You can tell this was the home of an artist... no matter the perspective, you are looking at something beautiful and well crafted.
