  • Very nice Museum on the Greek painter she said greco. The Museum represents his reconstituted House. Many paintings on display from him as well as of another painter. Going out in 1 hour.

  • Be aware if few facts: Firstly this is not el Greco house! He never lived here. The person who bought and renovated the place bought it accidentally thinking it was the house and it's not. Secondly, there aren't so many works of art, but maybe that less then half of them are el Greco. Those paintings that are attributed to him are studies of his and thus don't demonstrate his work. We felt like it was a misleading.
  • Not expensive. Informative and friendly staff. Could take pictures. Nice for size.
  • For all art buffs, this should be like a pilgrimage. Entrance is free. Flash less photography allowed. It shows the life, time and work of the famous Spanish painter, Doménikos Theotokópoulos or "el Greco" as widely known.
  • Coming from the birth place of El Greco that is Fodele in Crete Greece I was really pleased of what I saw and made me proud that I am from the same village...Great place really informative and also loved the form and structure...
  • So interesting to learn about el greco- well made and beautiful museum

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.
