The old House-Museum of El Greco was closed for four years and renovated and now it has reopened with a new name of Museo del Greco. The founder of the Museo del Greco was Benigno de la Vega-Inclan y Flaquer, the Second Marques de la Vega-Inclan, who lived between 1858 and 1942. He was one of the most influential art patrons of his time. This man was also responsible for the Casa de Cervantes in Valladolid and the Museo Romantico of Madrid.

This museum is the only one in Spain that is dedicated to the artist El Greco. It tries to show El Greco and his influence on Toledo during the 17th century. It also tries to show how the Second Marques de la Vega-Inclan  promoted this institution to recover and diffuse the paintings of El Greco.

The principal works in the museum are:

     1. The series of the Twelve Apostles, by El Greco. These paintings are large and there is a portrait of each of the Twelve Apostles.

      2. The Savior, by El Greco.

      3.View of Toledo, by El Greco.

      4.Portrait of Antonio Covarrubias, by El Greco.

      5.San Bernardino de Siena, by El Greco.

      6.The Tears of St. Peter, by El Greco.

      7. Portrait of Doña Mariana de Austria, by Juan Bautista Martinez del Mazo.

      8. Crucified Christ, by Luis Tristan.

      9.Portrait of the Marques de la Vega-Inclan, by Joaquin Sorolla.

      10.The Sacred Family, by Raimundo de Madrazo.
