When you think of museums in Madrid it's usually the big three of the Prado, the Reina Sofia and Thyssen that spring to mind. However, it was a smaller, less well-known museum in the north of the city that was our favourite. The Sorolla museum exhibits the work of Joaquín Sorolla, Spain's most renowned impressionist painter.

The museum is in his former home in Calle General Martínez Campos. Sorolla originally came from Valencia but moved to Madrid late in his life. There are a large number of his works on display and it's presented chronologically. Sorolla's use of colour is beautiful and there are many beautiful paintings on display.
