“Some Confusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2011

There seems to be some confusion here between the Convent of Santo Domingo el Antiguo and El Greco's house. They are not the same. The former claims his remains (lots of polemic about that) and the first works he did in Toledo (the altar pieces). Actually, only the paintings of the two San Juans are original, the rest are copies. The nuns there are very nice and sell great palmeras. His house never seems to be open.

“Not an easy find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

The famous Spanish painter El Greco lived in this house which today has an impressive exhibition of his paintings, as well as exhibits of other artists.
