Casa Lis - Salamanca

This is the card i've received today. It's a lottery card sent by Carla.
I live about 1 hour away from Salamanca and i've been there a couple of times but i've never seen this building.

"The Casa Lis is a property of the city government and the home of the Art Deco and Art Nouveau Museums of Salamanca. It is located across from the Salamanca side of the Roman Bridge. The outside of the building is the only architectural example of early 20th century modern art in the whole city. Inside there are 19 collections of more than 2,000 high-quality art pieces. The large collection was made possible primarily because of Manuel Ramos Andrade, who donated almost all of the art.
Before the Casa Lis was the home to the two museums, it was used for many different purposes. On April 6, 1995, the Art Deco and Art Nouveau Museums opened their doors. The Casa Lis is the most visited museum in all of Castile & Leon." - in:
