Converting places of worship into anything from educational institutions and hotels o homes is very much en vogue right now. Just such a modern creation has also come to Llanera, in the Asturias region of Spain, where the internationally famous street artist Okuda was given a free hand to transform a derelict, over 100-year-old church into the Kaos Temple skate park. His rainbow-colored geometrical wall and ceiling paintings draw large numbers of tourists – and give young locals a fantastic space to practice their skateboarding skills.
