El portal is a small community just South of  Miami Shores, between 85th and 91st Streets and between NE and NW 5th Avenues.

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.

Three cities merged in 1937 (El Jardin, Sherwood Forest and El Portal) and were incorporated into what is known today as The City of El Portal.

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

Although there is no commercial district in El Portal, it is centrally located and close enough to neighboring shopping.
