Where to stay in Toledo

When visiting Toledo, staying inside the old city walls allows for on foot access to all of the area's historical landmarks as well as a tight network of shops, restaurants, and museums. Similarly, staying in the old center, which sits on a raised hill overlooking the city, avoids a daily hike to the city's main attractions. Many old buildings in the center have been transformed into boutique hotels and guest houses, allowing visitors to experience the rich historical heritage and beautiful architecture of the city.

  • A lovely little museum paying homage to this artist. Guided tours are available to give you deeper insight into the artist's life and paintings and help you better appreciate his works.
  • Not just a museum - it's a little garden-park Oasis. The El Greco works are fine, but the key is the context for his work the museum interprets.
  • Just thoughts, Just me. That’s was a shot in my head. Was the beginning of this. This words. One following the other. Just trying to make sense and find the right meaning of what to say and how to say it. This plain and simple language can’t express this fast hands. It’s just a wish. A need. A constant proof that I want to get so close to that. To see what is behind that smile. Behind that white wall that rises in the middle of your mouth. Because I want to know more about the place where I want to jump into. All the cowards of the world know how this work. The fear is big. The reward also. But I'm like that, a curious coward. Trying to know a girl who I saw once. And take all from me. With things that even she don’t know. With little acts that become her so important to me. Mixed with my fears, plans, and ideas. She is on my way now. She is what I want and I'm going after her. With no more weapons that my words and this two hands. Just me. Just feelings. Can you handle it?
  • Fantastic museum, and on Sunday's it's free! The museum is in the house that Greco lived in when he was living in Toledo. Very cool building, and there is tons of his original paintings and information about his painting style and those that learned from him. Definitely worth visiting.
  • 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.
