It was absolutely amazing to see El Greco's painting in its actual space instead of in an art museum. It is an absolute gem of a painting tucked away in Toledo. We learned on the tour that El Greco's wife was from Toledo. That is why the painting is there. I was in awe of the whole setting. Prior to... More

A little church that has one of the best of El Greco work, and that will worth the 2,5€ that you need to pay to enter.

The church is small and beautifully decorated. But the real attraction is El Greco's masterpiece. I'm giving it an Excellent because the El Greco is definitely worth seeing!

The painting was pretty awesome. We were a part of a pre-paid tour so we "had" to go here but glad we saw the painting.

Doménikos Theotokópoulos, otherwise known as El Greco (The Greek) painted a mural at the Iglesia de Santo Tomas in Toledo. Though he was Greek, Toledo made him famous, and vice versa. The Burial of the Count of Orgaz celebrates the burial of Don Gonzalo Ruiz, the Count of Orgaz. According to legend, when he was buried, St. Augustine and St.... More

If you are into the classic paintings of the world, this is a must stop!! My wife and I visited Toledo Spain as a side trip from Madrid. We took a rain from Madrid, and enjoyed that trip. The train station as below the city of Toledo, and a simple (step filled) walk got us there. The entire walk took... More

I loved the contemplative chapel - one of the few places that invited prayer. The El Greco "Burial of Count Orgaz" was stunning a huge draw back was the tour group after tour group talking over one another to explain the painting. That said, for art lovers a must see

The church is a historical church. Its architecture is simple. But there is a famous painting made by El Greco that is of great importance. It's worth a visit.

Euro 2.50 will bring you to the last resting place of El Greco. Through a round glass filled hole in the floor U can glimpse the plain black casket where El Greco rests. The public areas of the building can only leave you inspired by the shear magnificence of the architectural decoration.....
