El Portal is a scenic and historic village in Florida’s popular Miami-Dade County. Its name comes from the Spanish word meaning “the wooden gate,” referring to an actual wooden gate that originally served as the passageway to the village. Mainly a residential neighborhood, El Portal is comprised of many single-family cottages and bungalows. With a rich history dating back to its foundation in the year 1937, El Portal still includes prime examples of South Florida’s early architecture from the 1930s and 1940s.
