Church of Santo Tome  - The Burial of Lord of Orgaz
The main attraction of this little church is the "The Burial of Lord of Orgaz" painting by El Greco. This painting shows San Esteban and San Agustin after the death of Don Gonzalo Ruiz de Toledo, Lord of Orgaz, who appeared to bury him. The painting is divided in two parts: the lower part depicts the portrait of earthly life while the top part shows the heavenly and divine elements. Some things about this painting: El Greco is the bearded gentleman in the middle with the Red Cross and two hands extended; in the handkerchief of the boy you will see its signature; the only woman between more than 50 figures is Virgin Mary and most of the famous characters of Greco's Toledo are portrayed in the painting.

This church was built over the ruins of a Mosque and is topped by a Mudejar tower. From its old vestiges only the beatiful and interesting mudejar tower, in brick, from the 15th century. On its upper two bodies there are groups of 2 and 3 arch windows, festooned with circles. Between them there is a blind archery over small columns. In one of the sides, it is embeded a niche in white marble, and in one of the other sides there is a pate styled cross, both visigothics and easily viewed from the street plane.
