Your Easy Guide to Malta

Gozo’s Azure Window is gone but not forgotten

28

It was the most famous natural icon of the Maltese Islands.

The Azure Window – that was featured in Game of Thrones and Clash of the Titans – collapsed into the sea after a storm on 8 March 2017.

The landmark represented Gozo and the island’s enduring raw beauty for decades, appearing on thousands of tourist postcards, holiday snaps and Instagram feeds.

The iconic, massive arch with its flat top over the sea at Dwejra, endured raging seas over the years, until the 8th March of 2017 when gale force winds and high waves swept it all away.

Experts believe the stunning geography of the area was created thousands of years ago when two limestone caves collapsed.

Here’s a look back at how the Azure Window changed over the decades as the power of the sea gradually eroded the rock day after day.
