Toledo: Santa Cruz — the city of the Greek

It is surprising how this foreign, this Greek, El Greco, merged into this city. From Crete, via Venice, Rome and Madrid, it was here where the finally found his haven. The city cannot be imagined without him, he cannot be imagined without this city. Characteristic lengthened figures, expression which was ahead of his times, with a scent of eastern mysticism rhymes so well but in a baffling way with buildings here which remember the times of inquisition.
