IT represents a transformation of biblical proportions: a century-old abandoned church given a new lease of life as a skatepark.

SKATERS PARADISE: Santa Barbara church

Originally designed by Austrian architect Manuel de Busto in 1912, the Santa Barbara church in Asturias was crumbling from neglect.

That was until Church Brigade – a group dedicated to saving abandoned churches – raised enough funds to flip its future by bringing the ancient relic into the 21st century.

Now dubbed Kaos Temple, the church-cum-skatepark was designed by Santander artist Okuda San Miguel.
