KAOS TEMPLE: A 100-year-old Church Turned Into A Psychedelic Skate Park

In Spain, a 100-year-old church has been turned into a skate park covered in murals by Okuda San Miguel, sponsored by Red Bull and dubbed KAOS TEMPLE.
Originally designed by Asturian architect Manuel del Busto in 1912, the historic church of Santa Barbara in Llanera, Asturias, is no ordinary place for parishioners.
The building was abandoned for years and crumbling from neglect. Luckily, a group of individuals lead by a collective called the ‘Church Brigade’, with help from online fundraising and Red Bull, the church was salvaged and turned into a public skate park dubbed ‘Kaos Temple’.
As if having a skate park inside a beautiful abandoned church wasn’t enough, artist Okuda San Miguel was commissioned to cover the walls and vaulted ceilings with his unique brand of colorful geometric figures. A vibrant display of faceted faces, geometric skulls and psychedelic wildlife encompasses the space overhead, wrapping all interior surfaces in a mesmerizing artwork.
Today, the ‘Kaos Temple’ is truly a special place to skate and a sanctuary for both skateboarders and art lovers alike.
