History:

In 1900, the powers of the Ministry of Development over Education and Culture are taken over by the Ministry of Public Education and Fine Arts. The remaining powers fall under the authority of the Ministry of Development: railways, roads, canals, harbors, lighthouses and buoys, as well as Agriculture, Industry and Trade. These fields of work were entrusted to the newly-established Department of National Economy in 1928, whereas the Ministry of Development was responsible for Public Works, Railways, Mines, Mountains, Fishing and Hunting. In the aftermath of the II Republic, by virtue of Decree of 16 December 1931, the Ministry of Development is renamed as the Ministry of Public Works. It comprised a Sub-Secretariat and three General-Directorates: Railways, Trams and Mechanical Road Transportation; Roads and Waterworks; Central Service of Harbors and Maritime Signals. The establishment of democracy leads to significant changes, such as the division of the Department into two between July 1977 and March 1991. It was split into the Ministry of Public Works and Urbanism (taking on the powers over housing and the General-Directorate of Territorial Action and Environment, provided by the Government), on the one hand, and the Ministry of Transportation and Communication (also Tourism since 1981), on the other.
