Beautiful El Greco Painting

This is a beautiful church with priceless artwork. A must see for El Greco art fans. Also, the view outside of the church is amazingly beautiful.

We went because of Rick Steve's recommendation and because he said it held El Greco's most beloved painting, The Burial of the Count of Orgaz. Seeing the painting was interesting but that is all there is. We could enter the church and the painting is in the vestibule. Not worth the entry exorbitant entry fee.

The El Greco is a joy,no photos allowed inside. You can light a candle and say a prayer instead or just sit quietly and chill. They had a celebration earlier so I had to go find something else. I came to see the painting.

The main reason most people visit the Iglesia de Santo Tome (Church of Saint Thomas) is to view the incredible painting by El Greco, 'The Burial of the Count of Orgaz.' This is hardly surprising as it must be considered one of the greatest in situ paintings in the world. The church itself is on the site of a former... More

One of El Greco masterpieces can be admired here, but apart from the painting is really nothing more to see, that´s why Entrance fee alone could be consider expensive, it´s better option getting the combo brazalet

Well this churches main attraction is the beautiful painting of El Greco's "the Burial of the count of Orgaz". Such a lovely painting, ethereal in its transparency and light, the division between the kingdom of men and the one of heaven. Me and my friend Knew the calamity of Tourist buses lining up with groups to go see this painting... More

I firmly believe its not worth paying for specially being inside of a church that doesnt give anything back to society, no pictures allowed and staff is stiff as a post, When travelling ive found churches are making a Hell of a lot of money and not paying a cent in taxes and it pisses me off that art is...

It is worth seeing - if only because of the great El Greco - an entire universe in his image. Enjoy this masterpiece

There are many wonderful sights in Toledo but if your time there is limited by all means go to this church and make your way through the throngs of people to see El Greco's stunning painting. I was part of a group with a guide, who explained the work for the group. If you go alone, take a few minutes... More

The main reason to visit this church is to view "El Greco's" magnificent painting "The Burial Of The Count Of Orgaz". We visited with a guide, which is probably for the best, as she could explain the painting to the group. It is a painting of heaven and earth, it shows the Count after death being accepted into heaven. El... More
