Owner description: 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.

Lovely garden, good info in english regarding the different rooms which they have tried to replicate from the time the Sorolla was there.

This museum is a treat: a full personal life and in immension artisticadi Sorola. It's a real intimate and moving portrait of the family life and the artistic evolution of Sorolla.
The house is wonderful as well as the garden.
The indications for tourists are very clear, but for the most interested, there are tourist guides very well informed.
I recommend it to those who want to see something really unusual after seeing the great museums of Madrid ... Personally, I loved it!!!

Sarolla is one of Spain's most beloved artists with paintings in museums all over the country. There is a good selection of this very successful painter and a chance to view a beautifully designed studio in his custom designed home and gardens. Visiting is a wonderful way to spend an hour.

This is easily my favorite! Prado comes close, but this tiny museum is so manageable for a single visit and I just love the vibes in this place. Joaquin Sorolla must have loved his wife and children so much that the good vibes permeates the entire villa!
