“See El Greco's masterpiece”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

The Burial of Count Orgaz makes this stop a must. El Greco's oil on canvas is captivating. No cameras aloud so buy a postcard or book to stoke your memory of this amazing piece of art.

“Dazzling !!!Bonus... moorish tiles!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

€2.50 admission fee is what you pay to see one fabulous painting..El Greco's most beloved...the burial of Count of Orgaz!!!! This is on the outside of the main entrance to the church and the beautiful gold altar inside the church …are so worth it…even today my eyes are bedazzled by the memory of both the altar and the painting and the sad part is that NO PHOTOS ALLOWED INSIDE .The church is so small and plain on the outside and such a ordinary looking type on the outside…you could so easily miss it..ASK FOR IT…As you walk on from the cathedral (its very close from there) just along the main road look to theLEFT .. it’s at the END of a little sloping street..the entrance is to the back DO NOT BE PUT OFF by the chained and locked front door.GO DOWN THE SLOPE AND TO THE LEFT IS CHURCH. The extra BONUS is the absolutely amazing little shop at the beginning of the street that sells HANDMADE MOORISH TILES for as little as 3 euro a piece…what a find really!!! I went overboard and picked up at least 2 dozen of them as gifts and even got a solid discount!!!

“Go for the painting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

If you care about Spanish art, it is worth the 2,50 EUR admission to see The Burial of the Count Orgaz. There are several other worthwhile sights nearby in this part of Toledo, including the Monasterio de San Juan de los Reyes, Santa Maria la Blanca and the El Greco museum.

“Nicer from the outside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

Although an interesting church inside, the chains from freed Christian slaves, which are hanging on the outside walls, are far more interesting.

“Tourist (trap)”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

1 (ONE) painting by El Greco for 2,50 EUR per person and that did not include entry to the Iglesia... not funny.
