'The Azure Window' has closed
The Azure Window, a naturally arched rock formation in Gozo, has sadly succumbed to nature. Scientific studies in 2013 had stated that its demise was inevitable, and heavy storms earlier in March were too much for the arch to withstand, and it collapsed into the sea. The formation had become famous after featuring in numerous films and TV programmes – including Game of Thrones.
But while the Azure Window has gone the way of the Dodo, there are still some other well-known geographical wonders that are well worth packing your bags to see, before they too disappear into the history books.
