Museo del Greco information
In the early 20th century, an aristocrat bought what he thought was El Greco's house and did a stunning job of returning it to period style. He was wrong, but the museum remains worthwhile. As well as the house itself, with its lovely patio and good information on the painter's life, there are excavated cellars from a Jewish-quarter palace and a good selection of paintings, including a set of the apostles by El Greco, a Zurbarán, and works by El Greco's son and followers.
