Malta Landmark Used in ‘Game of Thrones’ Collapses Into the Sea
A famous Malta landmark featured in Game of Thrones has fallen into the sea.
The Azure Window, a natural arch known locally as Tieqa tad-Dwejra, is no more.
The Gozo island landmark, which has been a tourist destination for years, was the backdrop for Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo’s wedding in the first season of the fantasy drama. It also featured in 1981 film Clash of the Titans.
The arch collapsed on Wednesday.
