I first saw this painting in 1995 and it took my breath away. Now 21 years later I have returned. The only thing that has changed is that you now have to pay a small fee to enter the church - but it is well worth it. This is one of those paintings that you just stare at in silence,... More

Glad to have seen a Greco painting with a very good guide. He explained that it was not the color but light that was important. Be prepared to walk on cobblestone streets and wear proper footwear. No photos allowed inside.

One of the kids had done a report on El Greco last year in school. We never expected to see it, but with the day trip to Toledo it became possible. The church is smaller than many but the painting is beautiful and worth seeing.

The church is a must see when visiting Toledo due to the fascinating El Greco painting which overtakes it. An audio guide/ guide is suggested for the interpretation of the painting.

The El Greco painting is very nice, but the church itself is nothing amazing compared to what else is in Toledo. It is part of the red bracelet set of sites and is worth seeing for the painting.

Yes, there are mobs of tour groups. A lot of people don't understand the painting. There's just the one great painting. But, IT'S EL GRECO'S GREATEST PAINTING! Spectacular! Spend some time understanding the composition, the stories that the characters (real citizens of Toledo) play. Ignore the mob that's is there only because their tour company included it. It should not... More

This place is absolutely mobbed with tourists. It's hard to blame them, because the El Greco painting the Funeral of Count Orgaz is one of the great pieces of art in human history. I wouldn't recommend paying for a tour, because so many tour guides were around giving their spiel, and you can't help but overhear. You're going to have... More

Famous El Greco painting. It was the only thing there as we were not allowed to go into the church. For €10 for a family of 4 for a less than 5 minute stay, thought it was not value for money. Indifferent.

This is a single painting attraction, but it worth it. By the time we visited this church, we have already saw a good number of El Greco paintings in main cathedral of Toledo ( and in Prado, Madrid) . But we were not disappointed. This huge El Greco painting is in extremely good condition, very accessible and the subject is... More

You will see this El Greco painting as part of visiting Toledo and it will be beautiful because of the play of colors in the painting. Amazing work.
