El Cid is home to a rich history and plentiful Spanish-inspired architecture. Residents of El Cid enjoy being within a few minutes of Downtown West Palm Beach, the intracoastal, Palm Beach Island and West Palm Beach’s Antique Row. El Cid’s community development began in the 1920s, however due to the Depression, development ceased. Then, in the 1980s, a revival began and has continued since. Numerous homes have been restored and received extensive renovations, while still offering the original mission-style charm. El Cid is currently listed on the local, state as well as National Register of Historic Places.
