(6 votes)

The current division of Spain's provinces originated in 1833 when Javier de Burgos, the Secretary of State of Public Works, issued a bulletin that divided Spanish national territory in 49 provinces, based on the idea of the French departments. All provinces were named after their capitals except four: Navarre, Alava, Guipuzcoa, and Vizcaya. The criteria to select the limits of each province were: distance (from the farthest point of the province one had to be able to reach the capital in one day), population (provinces had to have a population between 100,00 and 400,000) and geographic coherence.
