    If you have time visit the place where El Greco was born. The small museum is good for a quick visit and the place have a good cafe around.  more »

    This is a "nice" attempt to bring out the village that El Greco was born. The "Museum" is located in a nice location, really into the vegetation, and if you happen to be in the area you can go for a walk in conjunction with bathroom/food on the beach. Beyond that, the cultural centre does not constitute in any case a museum. Not exposed original works of the painter, but illuminated copies-photos. Moreover, it is relatively difficult in practical and economic terms to place something. In addition, it could be there was a view of the life and works of the famous artist, as well as some other educational activities figurative character. Still, could there was a small tour/speaking in relation to the "exhibits" that occur. So, it would make sense and the entrance of €2.20. Finally, in the same space, works with very reasonable prices and a cafeteria.

    There are some information panels there and several panels with photos of his paintings. In a way to walk through the pedestrian street of Fodele is much more interesting  more »

    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.

    El Grecov muzej je smesten u njegovom rodnom selu Fodele na ostrvu Krit u Sredozemnom moru. Putovanje po ovom neverovatno lepom ostrvu upotpunili smo i posetom ovom lepom mestu i rodnoj kući velikog El Greco-a.
