Opened in 1962, the museum is dedicated to the work of Joaquín Sorolla, a prominent Spanish painter who was known for his portraits and landscapes. Wander through the artist’s studio and home admiring some of his most famous paintings or relax in the light-filled gardens that inspired much of his work. Pick up an audio guide from the front desk to learn more about the artist’s life and the Impressionist period. The museum is free to the public on Sundays.

We love the light is Sorolla's paintings: look at it and you are there on the beach too! And in the garden with beautiful red flowers. Seeing his family photos and the marvelous statues makes their family home alive! I like to see how he has used colour and large strokes of paint. Great painter!!
Such a lovely atmosphere! I recognized Sorolla's work but was not familiar enough with him to put this museum at the top of my list. It's such a beautiful house and garden and the feeling there is peaceful and quiet--despite my being chastised by the docent for accidentally bumping into a chair! I listened to the audio tour and still found the laminated cards helpful. The upstairs was closed today. It was a refreshing break after the the Prado and Reina Sofia, especially since it was very inexpensive and I could take all the pics I wanted.
