    This is located in the southwestern part of town, in the Juderia (Jewish Quarter). This despite the fact that there is no proof that El Greco actually ever lived at this house. In any case they try to show how he might have lived with original time pieces, a few of his works concentrated on the time that he lived and worked in Toledo.

    If you're a fan the paintings of El Greco you can check out his "The burial of Count Orgaz" where it is housed in, what I believe is an old Cathedral? Anyway, it's a really interesting piece - photography isn't allowed.

    Iglesia de Santo Tom��

    Doménikos Theotokópulos, well known as "El Greco", was a painter who felt in love with Toledo. His masterpiece, "El Entierro del Conde de Orgaz" can be seen at Santo Tomé Church, where also is the tomb of Conde de Orgaz. Positively awesome.

    The Burial of Count Orgaz

    This painting is one of the most famous in the world and you can just find it at a local church in Toledo. It was created by El Greco to illustrate a local legend.
