The History of the Paseo De Los Ingleses
The name “Walkway of the English” is named in honour of British engineers who built the railway from Algeciras to Ronda. After the railway had been built Ronda became a popular destination for English gentlemen who were stationed in Gibraltar. They would make their way up into the hills, via railway, to obtain the fresh ‘English’ air of Ronda. You town would often see English gentlemen in black suits and top hats walking here who would often stay in the Reina Victoria Hotel, which was built in 1906 by the Iberian Hotels Company.
