Abandoned Spanish church was transformed into a skate park 3/16/2016 • juliet shaffer
Built in 1912, the church of Santa Barbara in Llanera was abandoned for some reason and started to ruin. Fortunately, enthusiasts from La Iglesia Skate decided to renovate the building. Now this is a number one destination for local skaters decorated with marvelous murals on its walls and domes!
All the paintings were created by the Spanish street artist Okuda San Miguel, who has gained success due to numerous works in different countries. His style is both original and recognizable.
Now the place is called Kaos Temple and is definitely worth visiting even if you aren’t a skater but just an art-lover.
