  • After seeing "The burial of the Lord of Orgaz", we visited the Museum of el Greco and is a sight to see. Only visit the portraits of the Apostles it would be enough, but there is more.

  • This museum was assembled to commemorate El Greco and show the kind of house he lived in. It has been nicely done. It gives a good impression of both his life and his paintings. Many paintings are copies but there are a few originals, and the series on the 12 apostles is impressive. Well worth a visit. Pensioners go free.
  • House restored as if it were the 16th century. Good showcase of history. Could have more paintings since most are replicas.
  • This is a fine and kind of quirky museum. Though there are a few paintings that stand out in the collection, I think one's time and money are better spent seeing the Cathedral's collection.
  • Small but interesting museum. It is not actually El Greco's house, but a similar one. Some paintings by El Greco himself and lots of paintings of his students and imitators.
  • Well, this is what you can call a rip off. Fair enough that there was some nobleman who thought he was buying Greco's house, and admitted he didn't. That's what you get throughout the whole house. You get a total of 4 of Greco's paintings (€0.75 per painting - not a bad bargain), and a ton of someone's imagination of what Greco's house could've looked like, but not the actual!
