About Toledo elsewhere
"In time his adopted land would claim him as one of its greatest artists, and the identities of El Greco (The Greek) and Toledo would become closely linked."
"Other attractions include the city's two synagogues, the Iglesia de Santo Tom (which contains El Greco's greatest masterpiece, The Burial of the Count of Orgaz )and the Museo de Santa Cruz."

"—From "Toledo—El Greco's Spain Lives On," June 1982."
"Many famous people and artists were born or lived in this city, including Garcilaso de la Vega , Alfonso X and El Greco ,and it was the place of important historic events such as the Visigothic Councils of Toledo."
"El Greco's intensely individual and expressionist style -- elongated and sometimes distorted figures, charged colors, and a haunting mysticism -- was seen as strange and disturbing, and his work remained largely neglected until the late 19th century, when he found wide acclaim and joined the ranks of Velazquez and Goya as one of the Old Masters of Spanish painting."
"Toledo, Spain ( map ), 1981 Photograph by James P. Blair Suspended between heaven and earth, Toledoï¿½Spain's spiritual heartï¿½has changed little from the day the Greek painter El Greco arrived in the 1570s."."
"The El Greco house and museum are well worth a visit and then you will want to see 'The Burial of the Count of Orcaz', displayed on its own in Santo Tomé."
"Suspended between heaven and earth, Toledo—Spain's spiritual heart—still retains the same classic charm that lured the famous painter El Greco to the area in the 1570s."
