From the documents found, it is believed that this parish was founded by Alfonso VI, after the Reconquest of Toledo. In the fourteenth century the entire temple had a state of ruins, except for its tower, so a total restoration was carried out at the expense of Don Gonzalo Ruiz de Toledo, Count of Orgaz, who is buried in the temple being one of the main protagonists of the history of the church, and of the great work of El Greco preserved here: “The Burial of the Count of Orgaz”

The chapel-museum where the painting is exhibited can be visited every day from 10:00 to 17:45 in winter and from 10:00 to 18:45 in summer.

It is closed on December 25 and January 1.
