Anne visits Malta – Azure Window Gone

The Azure Window, Gozo, Malta

It was indeed sad news.  The famous and beautiful Azure Window, in Gozo, Malta has succumbed to a wild storm that tore it and plunged it into the sea. This very famous tourist attraction had been eroding for some time and met its end this month. The Prime Minister of Malta said that it was indeed a sad day when this happened. The Azure Window  had  been featured in the “Game of Thrones” premiere. It must have been an awesome sight when this 92 foot high limestone arch simply dropped into the sea.

I am so glad I was able to be there, last year, when I visited Gozo.

As it is now

About Anne Pflug

I presently live in Venice Florida but was born on the island of Malta. I have relatives there and visit quite often. I am in the process of writing a travelogue and memoir about my visits and memories of Malta. I would like to use my blog to show the many photos I have taken and the beautiful sights that I have seen in Malta.
