Carvalho, Eugenio dos Santos de (1711–60). Portuguese architect responsible for the handsome rebuilding, on a regular street plan, of the area between Terreiro do Paço (Praça do Commercio) and O Rocío, Lisbon, after the earthquake of 1755. Buildings were in a sober, restrained French Neo-Classical style, and the works at Lisbon are among the most impressive of all late-C18 town-planning schemes. The work was carried out under the aegis of Sebastião José de Carvalho e Mello, later Marquess of Pombal (1699–1782).
