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.

Casa-Museo de El Greco

Pictures of Domenikos Theotokopulos (El Greco) and his pupils could be found in the museum. View of Toledo painted by El Greco and a many more great pictures of him. The house where the museum is situated is very typical example of Toledo architecture, so, it's also of interest to get inside.

El Greco was a great Spanish Renaissance painter. He was also a sculptor and architect. His nickname was ‘The Greek’ because he was born in Crete. He moved to Toledo in 1577 where he lived and also worked until he died in 1614. He was always look upon as a foreigner and a rebel by his contemporaries in Spain.

El Greco Museum

This house is sometimes called the El Greco House, but it is not really his house at all. However, it is in the same neighborhood and I would guess fairly representative of how he lived. It sits on a very small street you could miss, so watch for the signs as you approach. The house holds about 20 of his paintings, the most noteable of which are probably his "View of Toledo" and the portraits of the 12 disciples of Jesus. I found the "View of Toledo" most fascinating as it is done in dark tones, has some mystical entity above the city, is not a true representation and has a young man in the foreground holding a map. The museum is open daily except Mondays and holidays with hours of 10:00-14:00, 16:00-17:45, Sundays only 10:00-13:45. Admission is 2.40 Euros.

Photos are not allowed inside.

Casa de El Greco

This little house near the Sinagoga del Transito on Samuel Levi s/n is supposedly the house where El Greco lived, but this is not a proven fact. There is a museum attached to the house which displays some of the artists work.
