El Cid

One of the most distinctive, desirable and well-known neighborhoods in all of the Palm Beaches

Welcome to El Cid

Historic, waterfront neighborhood of stately Mediterranean homes
El Cid is one of the most distinctive, desirable and well-known neighborhoods in all of the Palm Beaches. Known for its many gorgeous homes of the Mediterranean Revival and Mission architectural styles, the entire El Cid neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Simply driving through El Cid West Palm Beach is a joy, whether along the waterfront of Flagler Drive or through the hedge-lined side streets separating passersby from the Spanish, Italian and Moorish homes. Living there, however, is a treat only reserved for those lucky enough to snatch one of these ultra-prized properties in El Cid.
The location offers easy access not only to downtown West Palm Beach and the Waterfront but also to Palm Beach and Palm Beach International airport.
