BRAGA HOTEL OPTIONS:
As duration and client budgets, based upon the many requests we have already received for this event, are too varied to project a pattern that will suit everyone in just one hotel, we are offering a couple of options. We will assist BMAF athletes in planning their trip to Braga on a tailor-made basis.
