Not very well known, but a must see

Without a doubt, one of the many must-see sites in Madrid is the Sorolla Museum. It’s not as well known as the other emblematic tourist attractions in Madrid, like the Royal Palace, the Plaza Mayor or the Prado Museum, but it has some really nice sites to offer visitors.

Sorolla, inspired by the famous gardens like those of the the Alhambra’s Generalife in Granada or Sevilla’s Royal Palace, designed this small garden, creating a more than pleasant nook in Madrid.

When you go through the gate that separates the building from the house of the central Madrid street on which it’s located (37 General Martínez Campos street), you’ll feel like you were taken to an Andalusian garden, where nooks like these are abundant.

A bank of rocks decorated with tiles, small fountains with flowing water running through tiny canals, classic statues, and lush trees are some of the elements that make up the Sorolla Museum’s garden.

During you subsequent visit to the museum, stop by the glass covered balcony in the old Sorolla house’s hall, and you can enjoy beautiful views of the garden from an entirely different perspective.

The Sorolla Museum is open Tuesdays to Saturdays, from 9:30 AM to 8 PM and Sundays from 10 AM to 3 PM. It is closed Mondays.

The gardens sorolla design.

Joaquín Sorolla himself designed and directed the planting of home gardens, Andalusian-inspired shows a very clear pawn painter further beautify your home. The garden is divided into three spaces, differentiated steps and columns. Sorolla drew the first one inspired by the Trojan Garden Labyrinth or the Alcazar of Seville: it took the design of the central source. He also decorated the area with a tile bench with sculptures and columns above. I planted in late 1911. For the design of the second space, was inspired by the Garden of the Ria de Generalife. Granada character, also incorporates elements of Italian gardening. It was planted between 1915 and 1916. In the third area, a pergola and a pool of Italian origin Seville, with some allegorical figures-The source of the confidences of Francisco Marco Diaz-Pintado. The projection of the rotunda and staircase tiles to create an irregular prevented Sorolla design a garden of Arab tradition. It was planted around 1912 or 1913 and rebuilt in 1917, once the second garden. These gardens are the perfect complement to a visit to the magnificent Casa Museo Sorolla.

Los jardines que diseñó sorolla.

El propio Joaquín Sorolla diseñó y dirigió la plantación de los jardines de su casa, de inspiración andaluza y una clarísima muestra del empeño del pintor por embellecer aún más su vivienda.
El jardín se divide en tres espacios, diferenciados por escalones y columnas.

Sorolla trazó el primero de ellos inspirándose en el Jardín de Troya o del Laberinto de los Reales Alcázares de Sevilla: de él tomó el diseño de la fuente central. También decoró esta zona con un banco de azulejería y con columnas con esculturas encima. Lo plantó a finales del año 1911.

Para el diseño del segundo espacio, se inspiró en el Jardín de la Ría del Generalife. De carácter granadino, incorpora también elementos de jardinería italiana. Fue plantado entre los años 1915 y 1916.

En el tercer espacio, una pérgola de origen italiano y una alberca sevillana, con unas figuras alegóricas -La fuente de las confidencias- de Francisco Marco Díaz Pintado. El saliente de la rotonda y la escalera de azulejería crean una planta irregular que impidió a Sorolla diseñar un jardín de tradición árabe. Fue plantado hacia 1912 o 1913 y rehecho hacia 1917, una vez concluido el segundo jardín.

Estos jardines constituyen el complemento perfecto para una visita a la magnífica Casa Museo Sorolla.

Peace

Just today I have been visiting the Sorolla Museum to see the exhibition "Gardens of Light" by the way is beautiful (maybe it's that I love Sorolla) and on the grounds of his house, he breathes peace and tranquility amid the city, which seems impossible ...

Paz

Precisamente hoy he estado visitando el Museo Sorolla, para ver la exposición "Jardines de luz", por cierto es preciosa (quizá sea que me encanta Sorolla) y en los jardines de su casa, se respira una paz y una tranquilidad en medio de la ciudad, que parece mentira...

Fascinating

It is a beautiful place that gives you a lot of peace. No time to go to the museum so I decided to enter the garden and is just beautiful. Sit on a bench and enjoy the sounds and nature is something we must give us to go to Madrid.

Fascinante

Es un lugar precioso que te da mucha paz. No tenía tiempo de entrar al museo por lo que decidí entrar sólo al jardín y es precioso. Sentarse en uno de los bancos y disfrutar de los sonidos y la naturaleza es algo que debemos regalarnos al ir a Madrid .
