  • This church although being relatively small is a real masterpiece with the Greco painting located in the entrance. Really to be seen.

  • One of the most famous paints of Greco. Use the city or tourist pass because it's only the painting.
  • There is only one thing to see here, but it's a real masterpiece. El Greco's "Burial od Count Orgaza" is one of the greatest paintings ever created and even if you are not interested in art you should try to experience its spiritual power. But do not rush. Stop making photos (it makes no sense here). Just be open and let the picture work. The church itself is not very interesting - you can easy skip it
  • A relatively small and peaceful church...
  • Beautiful church with many unique features. It is said to be the most important cathedral in Spain ( although not quite the largest. It has 7 organs, 3 of which are close enough to be played together. The large, elaborate montrance is taken out of its special room and paraded through town on the feast of Corpus Christi. It has a number of El Greco oil paintings among others in the church
  • Small but beautiful especially when deserted and you can admire the el Greco painting
