Your Easy Guide to Malta

Gozo’s Azure Window is gone but not forgotten

163

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.

The Azure Window pictured in the 1880s

It looked strong and sturdy in the 1950s

A postcard shows the arch in the 1960s



By 1967, it had become a tourist hotspot

The rock arch looked as strong as ever in 1973

It featured in Clash of the Titans in 1981

Part of the rock crashed into the sea in 2013

By 2016 the arch looked increasingly fragile

How it looks today

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
