The sleepy village of Castrogonzalo in northwestern Spain is an unlikely canvas for urban street art but every year a group of artists descends on the rural enclave to give its facades a new lick of paint.

This part of Spain is normally awash with earthy tones but the years-long interventions led by local graffiti artist Antonio Feliz, known as Parsec, and Madrid Street Art Project have made Castrogonzalo a mecca for urban art lovers and the village an explosion of color.
