In the late 15th century, Cardinal Pedro González de Mendoza – then the Archbishop of Toledo – commissioned Antón and Enrique Egas to build the Hospital of Santa Cruz. The facility was dedicated to healing the poor and serving orphans. The building now houses the Museum of Santa Cruz. Inside are archeological displays tracing the history of Toledo back to the Roman occupation in 192 AD. You will also enjoy fine arts from the 16th and 17th centuries including an altarpiece by El Greco. In addition, the Museo de Santa Cruz frequently has temporary exhibits from the Prado Museum in Madrid.
