Thanks for the suggestion of ID Liam, but I have read the description and there is one thing that doesn´t match, the size, I forgot to mention it but it was more or less 30 cm (12in). I don´t know about identification of owls so maybe this one was a bigger specimen of the species that you suggest, what do you think about it?
