The viola amarantina is called after the northern town of Amarante in Minho Province.
This viola has two heart shaped soundholes, and is the only viola with the fingerboard continuing in the soundboard (but still flush with it). The frets above the tenth fret are shorter, and are only under the highest strings.
The bridge is similar to the viola braguesa, with two glued-on leaves on both sides. This makes it different from the similar looking viola de diz cordes of Cape Verde and from the viola da terra used on the Azores, which both have a straight bridge. Usually there is also some inlay decoration beneath the bridge, in the shape of a flower with leaves.
The tuning of the 5 metal strings of the viola amarantina is in 5 courses :
d'd a'a b'b e'e' a'a' (like the guitarra tuning - see viola braguesa).
The viola amarantina is also sometimes played in Cabo Verde.
