It’s been 3 years since Gozo’s famous Azure Window collapsed

Today marks 3 years since the loss of one of the most famous landmarks in the Maltese Islands.

The Azure Window in Gozo crashed into the sea during a severe storm on March 8, 2017.

The iconic landmark was world famous and featured in the first series of the HBO series Game of Thrones as well as in several films including Clash Of The Titans.

The Azure Window represented Gozo for decades, appearing on thousands of tourist postcards, holiday snaps and Instagram feeds.

Even Meghan Markle visited the site on a trip to the Maltese Islands before she married Prince Harry.

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

Here’s a look back at how the Azure Window looked before the power of the sea swept it all away.
