We knew that this church contained an El Greco painting. We paid the minimal entrance fee and suddenly, in the entrance hall, there was "The Funeral of the Count of Orgaz!" The painting is absolutely amazing. It has movement, colour and a great wow factor. We stood and gazed at it for some time before entering the church. The church itself was not very appealing. All the statues appeared in your face and had a style I found repelling. However, the picture behind the altar was very interesting. As I looked, the penny dropped. It was a painting of the moment when Jesus appeared to Thomas who exclaimed, "My Lord and my God!" Of course, it keyed into the name of the church, St Thomas. Worth the visit just to see the El Greco.
