Photographer's Note

The museum of the painter Domenikos Theotokopoulos (El Greco) is located opposite the Byzantine Church of Panagia at position Theotokiana, by Fodele. The building that houses the museum is believed to have been the house of the greatest Cretan painter (1541-1614) as he mentioned that he was born 25 km northwest of Heraklion and next to a Byzantine Church.

The building operates since 1998 with an exhibition of replicas of works of El Greco. Also there is information about his family and a room has been transformed into a painting workshop.
