When I have to convince some of my friends to go and visit Museo Sorolla I always tell them it’s a sort of Villa Necchi, but where an artist lived, not an aristocrat.
I always loved to visit real places, see exactly where an artist was painting, and in Museo-Casa Sorolla you can see even the brushes of Joaquín Sorolla.
The garden is great even in December in I visited it. In spring it should be Amazing.
A very interesting discover was the «CINCO MUSEOS, OTRO MADRID». I have already visited Museo Sorolla and Museo del Romanticismo, which were really great, and maybe I enjoyed them even more that Reina Sofia, because I love to discover tiny gems.
Now apparently I still miss three more gems of this beautiful city:
- Museo Lazaro Galdiano
- Museo Cerralbo (update – I’ve been to Cerralbo and here the link of the article)
- Museo National des Artes Decorativas.
These five museums are five different homes, very elegant buildings with unique collections.
