Native painter Joaquín Sorolla was a contemporary and friend of John Singer Sargent, and the parallels in their paintings are immediately apparent. (They are so clear, in fact, that two years ago the Thyssen-Bornemisza mounted an entire show around their commonalities). Sorolla documented the bourgeoisie of late-19th- and early-20th-century Spain as well as common people, and his gorgeous, often haunting, heavy oils are on display in what was his former home.
The outdoor patio is small but lovely, with Andalusian tiles and running water. It costs nothing to sit in the garden and read.
