If you're at all interested in art, a visit to the Museo del Greco is a must-stop in Toledo. Situated in the old Jewish Quarter (and standing right above the historic Jewish Cellars, which have recently been discovered), the museum really isn't an exact replicate of El Greco's house. However, this small site will give you a good overview of the artist's life and works. The house itself is nothing special - there is no sense that anyone actually lived or worked here (compared to Rembrandt's house in Amsterdam, for example). Not many of El Greco's works are housed here, although the Apostles series is on view. Although 2014 is the Year of El Greco, the museum surprisingly did not appear to be doing anything especial for the celebration. Hint: right across from the museum is a lovely small park for relaxing with a drink or ice cream.
