Was worth the walk to see this museum and learn about El Greco. Its very quiet inside but a wonderful atmosphere for those wanting to soak it all up. Its a great place to get out of the sun as well.

Well curated, interesting museum. A cool retreat from the heat of the town. Inexpensive to visit and well worth it.
