100-year Church Skate Park

The church of Santa Barbara in Llanera, Asturias, has been abandoned for years until a group of of people called the ‘Church Brigade,’ came to the rescue. With help from online fundraising and Red Bull, the church was salvaged and turned into a public skate park dubbed Kaos Temple.


Spanish artist Okuda San Miguel (aka Okudart) collaborated with La Iglesia Skate and Red Bull to transform the decrepit interior of the old, abandoned Santa Barbara church in Llanera, Asturias into an awesome skatepark called the Kaos Temple. The project was made possibly thanks a crowdfunding campaign and help from Red Bull.

While beautiful skating ramps were constructed on the church floor, Okudart painted the church’s walls and vaulted ceilings with vibrant geometrical characters. In this video Okudart discusses the inspiration for his stunning artwork inside the Kaos Temple and elsewhere:
