El Greco’s own Toledo

Admirers of the master painter El Greco (Domenico Theotokopoulos) now have an extra reason to visit the Prado museum in Madrid. Until November 1, next to the two permanent galleries devoted to the artist’s work, the museum is giving one more room (Sala 8A in the Villanueva Building) to the great Cretan master, in order to highlight El Greco’s love to the city he lived. There you will appreciate his unique work, View and Plan of Toledo, in contrast to the partial views of the city that appear in other works by the artist.
