El Portal Real Estate

El Portal is a small community just South of Miami Shores, between 85th and 91st Streets and between NE and NW 5th Avenues. It was incorporated in 1937 when 3 cities merged into what is known today as The City of El Portal. (El Jardin, Sherwood Forest and El Portal).

The city is a bird sanctuary and it is known for its beautiful trees and birds. You may also be one of the fortunate ones that will see a peacock walking around. There is even a piece of Tequesta Indian history in The Sherwood Forest area where you will find a historically designated Ancient Burial Ground.

El Portal real estate varies from historic Spanish Revival Architecture to modern homes.
