Visitors roll up to the church, see the portrait and leave. The church is not inspiring, and the ElGreco is the only item worth seeing. However it is a "must" while in Toledo. I advise to buy the wristband for 8 euros which takes in 6 sites, all of which I think, is more interesting than Santo Tome. The sites... More

This tiny little church was buried in the middle of Toledo. The painting was quite majestic. During our visit the only part you could go in was the small "foyer" that contained the painting. Truly the painting was the largest in scope I have ever seen outside of a museum, encompassing an entire wall as the painting is 12 ft... More

If you love El Greco, you must see this. Go to the Museo de Prado in Madrid and then go here. It displays El Entierro Del Senor Orgaz (The burial of the Count of Orgaz) in all it's glory on the wall of the church. It is part of the 6 church tour for 8 Euro. No photographs, but well... More

We probably wouldn't have paid to go visit this church, but it was already paid for with a multi museum card. We've been to many churches and cathedrals throughout Europe, and this is definetly one of them. I wouldn't make a special trip here, but if you have time and have the museum card, then sure, go ahead.

The Santo Tomé Church is a fundamental part of any visit to Toledo, and can be made either on the way in or just coming out of the Jewish quarters of the old Town. The church itself is very interesting having once been a mosque, and only partially modified during the Reconquista to house a catholic temple. Also, the opportunity... More

The famous Entierro del Conde Orgaz painting was a bit of a disappointment and more even so that it doesn't look like and old painting at all, but a reproduction, considering that the maintenance and security is almost non existing and the rest of the show that they put together to beef up the exhibit and justify the 2.5 euros...

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.

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