The symbology that El Greco hides in this painting deserves to do a little research before, otherwise we could miss a lot. You can't miss it if you visit Toledo!

Little is paid for such a treasure. There is a bracelet with which you can enter almost all the monuments of Toledo for (I think) 9 euros, it is very worth it.
I do not have a problem with the place. I have a problem with them charging for something that used to be free. A few years back, I walked in and out freely and took several pictures of El Greco's mural with no issues. Now you must pay three euros to enter a small church that has nothing to see except the mural and they no longer allow you to take photos. Enter the gift shop, buy a poster and save yourself time and money.
Nice place. Full of good vibe
