At the far end of the garden, we can find the said Andalusian courtyard. A quadrangular space with vegetation looked over by an octagonal fountain coated by Triana tiles. Arranged around the courtyard are three galleries opened by arches and columns, and a fourth wall closed with windows (current ticket office and Museum shop). This courtyard provided light to certain rooms of the house, especially to the studio of Sorolla (room III) and to the living room of the house. The household areas of the house were located around the courtyard, like the kitchen and other additional services.
All of the galleries of the courtyard are decorated with a strong popular taste. A plinth made of ceramic from Talavera de la Reina covers all of its walls, over which are also located some ceramic panels from Manises, like the one dedicated to Saint Marta and Saint Pascual Bailón. Abundant and diverse furniture as well as popular ceramics (shaving bowls, chocolate saucers, plates, pitchers or holy water vessels from Manises, Paterna, Alcora, Talavera or Fajaluza) complete the decoration of the galleries.
