Definitely worth the time to go in and view one his most famous works. It was beautify and I'm very glad I did not miss seeing this work. We did not see the museum holding much of his work and the special exhibit as it is closed on Monday .

In a small Church in the center of Toledo you may find an impressive oil on canvas by El Greco, called El entierro del Conde de Orgaz. It's definitely worth a visit if you are in Toledo or if you like El Greco.

Quaint church in old Toledo, Spain. Easy to get to walking around town. Half way from Center to El Greco's house,

To view El Greco's masterpiece you must visit the Iglesia de Santo Tome. It was crowded and photos were not allowed. Breathtaking!

Take advantage of a short line for the 10 minutes it takes to pop in and see this masterpiece. Toledo has many sites close together, so shift your schedule if you see a line.

Seeing this wonderful work by El Greco in the location for which it was commissioned, over the tomb of Count Orgaz was simply amazing. It includes a self-portrait of the artist, a likeness and of the Cretan's son. The candles are no longer lit, due to the damage they were causing the painting, and the lighting is poor by modern...

The church of Santo Tomé in Toledo dates from the 12th century but was rebuilt in the 14th century by the Count of Orgaz. It is visited mainly to admire the most famous painting of El Greco: the Burial of the Count of Orgaz, which is on display in a special room. From our hotel in the center of Madrid... More

One way of beating the crowds is to turn up before it opens (at least half an hour before, better a whole hour), so that when it finally does open you'll be the first in. There's no limit on how long you can stay inside, so you can look as long as you want, only a few yards from the... More

This is a very small sanctuary of a large fresco painted by El Grego. Some say it is the best example of his work. It is certainly elaborate, but I'm not a big fan of this particular painter, so I could have skipped it. It is on the "Pulsera Turistica" which is a museum pass for 8 Euros that allows... More

The Greco work of art within the entrance is a highlight, especially now during the El Greco Exhibition celebrating his 400th year. For other El Greco venues, one has to reserve a time to get in and view pieces because of crowds, lack of space, etc. There should be the same thing here as the entrance is tight and the... More
