  • It is humbling to visit, beautiful place but very poor of exhibits. I think I could add several more to complete the picture you will have someone that great painter.

  • Nice walk to this fro Fodele Water Park. Its really the only historical thing to do in the area in walking distance  more »
  • On a Sunday in October, we parked our rental car in Fodele and we followed the direction "Museum El Greco". Surprise at the discovery of a quite long way to walk in nature. At a small byzantine Church, we were seized by the beauty and serenity of the place. A few meters above, the small museum is presented to us. Visit interesting and short, because there is not a lot of rooms. The life and work of the painter that seems extremely modern despite the centuries we have fascinated. The journey to this place really worth it. Nature and culture together in a small jewel of greenery.

  • nice cozy place and village
  • The place can hardly be called a museum as its exhibits consist in photographic repros of El Greco 's work. However the neighboring frescoed church Archaggelos Michail is just fantastic.
  • Magical place :-)
  • The biggest attraction here is that El Greco probably was born in this village and in this House. Next to is a Byzantine Church where he probably was baptized. The Museum has of course only copies of his most famous work, but they are just as beautiful no matter what. It's the same landscapes we see today that he saw as a boy. The same Church also. A wonderful experience to get closer to the big boss.

  • House-Museum is located in a pretty town and feature. The works contained only reproductions are so the visit was disappointing. On the other hand there is also a small bar surrounded by greenery that creates a relaxing atmosphere
