There are so many similar things to see in the city of Toledo and this is another one I was happy to visit as I meandered my way around.

It was well worth visiting another church in Toledo just to see the stunning El Greco painting! Please be aware that you are not allowed to take photos of this masterpiece.

You can't miss this. It has only one worthwhile attraction - the greatest El Greco painting , the burial of the Count of Orgaz. A must see for all art lovers. Very crowded though and expect a wait.

The church as a church is typical and has nothing special to see except of one true masterpiece as it is "The Burial of the Count of Orgaz" of El Greco. Must visit if you are in Toledo. There is a replica of this painting in Prado museum but can not prepare you for the size and the awe of... More

This is just a nice small church that probably would have been by-passed but for one painting by El Greco, The Burial of Count Orgaz, purportedly to be his best work. If you are an art lover then you should stop by (small entrance fee). If you are not sure or have no interest in art, you may pass it... More

Somehow disappointing because of big crowd in the small space where the picture of Greco is to be seen.

The church was nothing to boast about and other than the el Greco painting it was dull and boring. There are better sites to see on Toledo.

I believe this church is actually in the (ancient) Jewish quarter section of old Toledo, but visiting this painting is very rewarding as you can learn a lot of history in just one painting, Highly recommend using a guide that can give a 15 minute drill down on the painting and all its symbolism and meaning from the famous El...

This powerful painting by El Greco should not be missed while in Toledo. Easily his best work, it is very evocative in its portrayal of the event and the narrative that includes the who's who in Toledo at that time. Here's a singular art that made me admire his genius. The church takes a back seat although its iconic bell... More
