Accommodation and Meals:
In Tordesillas there is not one hotel in which all participants can be lodged together. Therefore, the organization has agreed with some hotels to block some rooms for the participants. These Hotels are all more or less the same category.
Due to logistic reasons, it is advisable to let the organizing committee do all the accommodation arrangements. You only need to fill the inscription form with the date of arrival and departure. At the beginning of September we will give you the name of your hotel. By doing so, you don't have to make any reservations by yourselves.
Lunch will be served in "Los Toreros" hotel everyday for all the participants and it is included in the registration fee. Breakfast and dinner will not be provided by the organization.
