Expert review of Sorolla Museum
Joaquin Sorolla was born in Valencia in 1863 and lived in this house from 1911 until his death in 1923. Even if you don't recognise his name, you may well be familiar with some of his languid beach scenes, which have been widely used for posters and cards.
His studio is still pretty much how it was when he lived here and contains some of his best-known paintings. Upstairs, you can see some of the works he painted for the Hispanic Society of America in New York, which depict people from all over Spain in traditional dress.
Don't miss the lovely garden outside, which Sorolla designed himself, inspired by the Alhambra in Granada and the Reales Alcazares in Seville.
Unlike big museums, here you get a real idea of what made Sorolla tick and how he lived.
Admission 3 euros. Free on Sundays.
