We were going to skip this, but happened by just as it opened up for free entry morning. My wife was fascinated, I was interested. Lots of glasswork, and a whole wing of dolls, but not much hanging artwork. The classwork in the tearoom is...More

Yes there is. And further to the answer above, here is a more general explanation of the situation you will confront. You need to approach with care, for an easy visit. Salamanca is a walled city and parking inside the city, though possible is a nightmare because of one way narrow streets. The city is also high up, higher than the surrounding river which has a road running alongside it, that joins to the ring road at each end, with bridges over to the other side. The Casa Lis museum and shop have a small courtyard in front of them and face INTO the city, on the road (Calle Gibralta) that comes in to the city from the riverside road. It is only a short walk from the river at that point. Its exterior is amazing - over-looking the river and road. The building drops down three stories with a stained glass 2 tier conservatory facing outwards over the river. Looking up at it from the river, road and bridges the Cathedral towers above and behind Casa Lis. It is worth driving to the front of the museum which can be seen from far away and turning onto side roads with P signs in front of the Conservatory, near the river, with street parking - before following signs to the car parks described above. If successful, you are then faced with only a short walk across the road and up a road line with bollards to enter the city and join the road that the museum is on. All of this can be seen easily and clearly using Google. The Casa Lis entry on Google has a Google map and a street view that you can follow the above from, step by step. Enjoy your visit. it is an amazing place. .
