La Red nacional de los ferrocarriles españoles, or RENFE (National Network of Spanish Railways) is Spain's national railway operator. It operates Spain's 15,000 km (9,500 mile) system of broad gauge railways.

In addition to intercity transport, it operates commuter train systems in a number of major cities including Madrid and Barcelona. (In the latter it is supplemented by the Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya , Catalonia's rail system.)

It has a high-speed rail line in standard gauge, AVE, between Madrid and Seville. This is expected to be extended to Barcelona in the next few years.

The company was formed in 1939 when Spain's railways were nationalised.
