El Greco's Painting
Santo Tomé Church is the place where we find El Greco’s impressive painting “The Burial of the Count of Orgaz”. But we have already heard all about the painting.
Santo Tomé Church was built at the beginning of the 12th Century and reconstructed in the middle of the 14th Century by the Count of Orgaz, notary from Castile. The tower is one of the best examples of Toledo’s mudejar art. The interior of the church has three naves where we can see an altarpiece and a font, both from the 16th Century, and an image of the Virgen de la Alegría. It is an image that portrays the Virgin with the child and he is touching her chin while she smiles. It is really beautiful.
