The main reason to visit this church is to stand in awe in front of El Greco's masterpiece, The Burial Of The Count Of Oraaz. This wonderful piece of art was commisioned for this church and has never been moved from the setting for which it was painted. When you stand in front of it you are part of its... More

The main attraction for me was the El Greco. The story of El Greco and the interpretation of the painting greatly enhance viewing it and give the viewer a much greater appreciation of El Greco and his talent as a painter.

Here is the church where you can see the fantastic El Greco painting in an alcove. You enter through a modern glass doorway, pay your fee and then see the tomb and corresponding artwork. The remainder of the church is fairly ornate, and does provide a place for quiet contemplation.

You can just stare at the painting and that would be enough. The story behind it makes it come alive and it is possibly the most beautiful painting I saw in Toledo

Well worth the stop here for both the church and the El Greco painting of The Burial of Count Orgaz. I would recommend to download the history of this El Greco painting before you begin viewing it as there is a significant amount of unusual stories that go along with the painting that make it super fascinating. You will want... More

The sight of the painting of the burial of a Spanish Count in the porch to this Church is an amazing experience. It is so well preserved, and although many parties fill the space around it, just wait till they leave, and you can then view it up close. The church itself is something of an anti- climax after the... More

It doesn't matter if you don't love art or don't care to understand the story behind the picture. You will still catch your breath on viewing El Greco’s masterpiece The Burial of the Count of Orgaz. The colors and intricate, exact details are candy for the eyes! The painting is displayed outside the church in a separate entranceway. Part of... More

The church itself if somewhat unspectacular. Just another church. However the reason to visit this is the amazing Greco in the room before you enter the church. It's an incredible painting and it's worth a look particularly if you're an art fan.

If you are a fan of seeing art where the artist meant it to be rather than in a museum, be sure to stop here and see El Greco's 'The Burial of Court Orgaz'. It's full of symbolism and El Greco painted himself and his son into the picture along with the guy who paid the commission for the painting.... More

The reason to visit this modest church in the Jewish Quarter of Toledo is the magnificent El Greco painting. No matter how much I see of his work, I am continuously enthralled. There is a quality of Impressionism long before its time, and oh the colors. Well worth the nominal entry fee. My complaint would be that the tour groups... More
