  • 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...

  • Not his best works here, but the museum is still interesting. Based around what a house would have been like in his times, the tour successfully shows you what his life was like and how he became popular after his death.
