The El Greco Museum or Museum of Domenikos Theotokopoulos can be found in the village of Fodele and it is dedicated to one of the most important Greek artists, El Greco, who was born and raised in Crete.

The museum was established in 1998 and the stone-built building that houses it was a result of a reconstruction of a much older building, allegedly the painter's former house, which took place in 1982.
In the museum you will find replicas of some of the painter's most significant paintings, as well as a collection of photographs and the recreation of an atelier.
To see two original works of the artist, you can visit the Historical Museum of Crete.
