As others have noted, Toledo is celebrating the 400th anniversary of El Greco's death. A big part of the celebration is a temporary exhibit of over 100 of El Greco's work. 60 of those works from 29 different cities. I can get overloaded fairly quickly by religious art, but the presentation and descriptions accompanying the art made for an interesting, education and fun visit.
The museum is in the former Santa Cruz Hospital, a 16th century building featuring a Plateresque façade and coffered ceilings. The building itself is worth the visit.
Even after visiting the Museo del Prado and the Museo Thyseen-Bornemisza in Madrid, the collection of El Grecos at the Museo de Santa Cruz is a standout.
