The history of the guitar family of instruments in Portugal is quite different from that of neighbouring Spain. This may be evidenced by the nearest Portuguese equivalent to the Spanish guitar being called a "viola", while the "guitarra" resembles an instrument of the mandolin family.

At least some of the differences and traditions can be traced to the country's Atlantic and sea-faring connections.

This category is intended to include all Portuguese variants of the guitar family.
