If you like the Impressionists and aren’t familiar with Joaquin Sorolla, Spain’s best known representative of this movement, you are in for a treat! He was a most wonderful painter of light and the sea. His favourite time seemed to be that magic hour when the sun is sinking low in the West and turns everything a golden pinky hue.

Originally from Valencia, Sorolla, he was hugely successful in his own lifetime and settled with his family in this beautiful house on Calle General Martinez Campos in 1890. You can drink in the atmosphere in his formal garden, parts of which you can spot in some of his works, in his studios and living quarters. As well as his paintings, the house is filled with beautiful objects, icons and ceramics, of which he appears to have been an avid collector.

Popular with Spanish locals, I recommend visiting at lunchtime – 14:00 – 16:00, when you can enjoy a nice relaxed wander through this delightful little museum.
