We loved this charming museum very close to the Sefardi synagogue-museum. The use of the space and the layout was interesting and effective. Give yourself time to not only take in the many El Greco paintings but the small gardens.

Take some guides if possible. You get a crash course of the artist life and (real) paintings. The ambient and site itself is wort a visit.

Wonderful historical presentation for the work of El Greco. We enjoyed seeing a typical home of the day. Nicely presented home, studio, gallery. Enjoyed seeing his work and that of contemporaries and students. Garden is also lovely. Please refresh signage...many letters missing in English version.
