Highly recommend this lovely smallish museum. Housed in a beautiful building, the collection is largely religious with some 1400-1700 artifacts. Several El Greco paintings as well. Reasonably priced at 4 euros each.

The place itself is very beautiful with an old cloister. The exhibitions were amazing (historical and contemporary art). A must see in Toledo.

There are two sections to the museum, we only visited the free section, but there was so much to see there, that we didn't see the need to go into the other part as well. The view over Toledo and the surrounding countryside is worth...More

We visited this museum to view the El Greco paintings. It was very much worth it. All of the art is nicely displayed, there is plenty of room to observe with other patrons, and the rooms are easy to navigate.
