Sorolla Museum

The Sorolla Museum offers a charming view into the life of Joaquín Sorolla. Located in his original house, the museum displays a host of paintings and drawings, as well as his private collection of sculptures and photographs.

The Home Of Joaquín Sorolla

Located in the house where Valencian painter Joaquín Sorolla lived with his family, the Sorolla Museum is a charming place to visit. It is not as well known as other museums such as the Prado, but the collection of Sorolla’s paintings and drawings offer a fascinating view into his life as it was at the beginning of the 20th century.

Preserving A Legacy

The house was built in 1910, and donated to the state by Sorolla’s widow, Clotilde García del Castillo. The museum aims to promote Sorolla’s legacy, who was known as the painter of Mediterranean light, and their collection is steadily growing. A tour around the house shows his vast collection of sculptures, ceramics and antique photographs, as well as his paintings.

Beautiful Surroundings

A walk through the museum offers a journey through time. Sorolla’s studio complete with original paintbrushes looks just as he might have left it. The house is also surrounded by pretty gardens, and offer the perfect place for an afternoon stroll.
