The Sorolla Museum is located in Madrid in a building on the Paseo del General Martínez Campos, once the studio and home of Joaquín Sorolla together with his wife and their three children. The building was built in 1911 under the direction of the architect Enrique María Repullés, to create a functional space for the work area and the living area with a garden. The house preserves the original environment of most of the spaces and houses a large collection of Sorolla’s works, and numerous objects that he collected during his life. It is one of the best preserved artist’s houses in Europe.

Since 1 March 1962, the building has been a Spanish National Historic Monument.
