  • Some of the times I visited there were tourists complaining that "there was only one big picture in that place"... :-( I could be looking at him for hours and discovering new details. 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!

  • El Greco is one of the few "Spanish" authors (he is Greek, but spent most of his life in Toledo) who is in the history books of the pictorial renaissance and this is his most important work. 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.
