NATURE: Game of Thrones Landmark is No More

Azure Window

It served as the spectacular backdrop for Daenerys Targaryen’s wedding to Khal Drogo in the first ever episode of “Game of Thrones.”

But the natural “Azure Window” rock arch that jutted off Gozo Island in the Maltese archipelago is sadly no more. A powerful storm Wednesday caused the arch and its stack to collapse into the sea below, reports the Times of Malta.

“There was a big raging sea beneath the window,” said local resident Roger Chessell, who witnessed the collapse. “Suddenly, the arch collapsed into the sea with a loud whoomph, throwing up a huge spray. By the time the spray had faded, the stack had gone too.”

Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat called the collapse of the limestone rock “heartbreaking.”
