El Greco Museum - a small museum located in the centuries-old stone house. It is believed that here Domenikos Theotokopoulos was born (1541 - 1614). Better known as El Greco, Theotokopoulos trained as an icon painter in Crete, then moved to Toledo in 1577, where he took over the Spanish culture and worked in this style until his death. Stepping in front of the art of icon painting of his time, he expressed himself through color and shade, but his talent was recognized only in the 20th century. Some of his work can be seen in the museum. The museum is located in the village of Fodele among orange groves about 18 km from Heraklion.
