Santo Tomé

To speak of Santo Tomé is to talk about El Greco and his masterpiece: 'The Burial of the Count of Orgaz,' the pinnacle of El Greco's work and universal painting.

Century XIV

Plaza del Conde, 4

For many, it is the most influential pictorial work in universal history. It is one of the most visited tourist sites in Spain, and its beauty will not leave you indifferent.

Art and painting enthusiasts find in Santo Tomé a place to marvel at the great work of the Cretan painter.

The church was rebuilt in the late 14th century at the request of the Lord Count of Orgaz, who added the current Christian bell tower to the old Muslim minaret. Santo Tomé also offers visitors the opportunity to explore one of the richest churches in the city in terms of history and art.

Don Gonzalo Ruiz de Toledo, chief notary of Castile and lord of the town of Orgaz, stood out for his generous charitable works, contributing to the reconstruction of parish churches like this one.
