  • The museum was amazing! A great place to review an impressionist / naturalist painter. The house was colorful, light, and Airy. He was a master of light and painting in different shades of white. From his paintings, it is clear that he adored his family.
  • Wonderful house where Joaquin Sorolla lived and painted. Full of original furniture and his paintings. We'll worth a visit especially if you've never heard of him. Like me!
  • A wonderful museum full of the artist's paintings as well as his own personal collection of furniture and sculptures. Definitely worth a visit!
  • The hidden gem of Madrid museums. The combination of history, architecture, culture, and fine art is great. It's also free on Sunday... And the gardens are beautiful and shaded. Nice place for a short rest from the hot sun.
  • For English speakers- this is a must see museum. It's gorgeous inside and out, with the garden and all, and it's truly worth seeing the stunning paintings. Plus, they've got all the guides in English too. Et français aussi.
