Abandoned Old Church Turned into Beautiful Mural-Covered Skate Park

An architect named Manuel del Busto designed the majestic old church in 1912. It gracefully served the community for decades. But for many years afterward, the Church of Santa Barbara in Llanera, Asturia, Spain had been abandoned.

It's found new life and a new purpose, thanks to artist Okuda San Miguel and Red Bull. The interior is covered with fractal murals of abstract forms, human faces, animals, and skulls. It's an eruption of color that caps a skateboarding pipe in what is now called El Kaos Temple. You can see more photos at Design Boom.
