Kaos Temple, hidden in the northern Spanish village of Llanera, welcomes faithful followers of an eccentric sort.

The currently deconsecrated church was built in 1913 and was once part of a residential complex for workers of a munitions factory. It was abandoned at the end of the Spanish Civil War in 1939 and left empty for decades.

Then in 2014, the Church Brigade collective and artist Okuda San Miguel totally transformed the Santa Barbara temple into a vibrant skatepark, serving as a place of pilgrimage for lovers of skate culture.

Aside from an old confessional, everything inside the once-holy "Church of Skate" has since been removed -- making way for a true skateboarder's paradise.
