Malta landmark featured in Game of Thrones has collapsed into the sea

The country's Prime Minister tweeted the "heartbreaking" news and shared photos of the destroyed Azure Window


A world-famous natural landmark in Malta, nicknamed “The Azure Window” and used as a backdrop in Game of Thrones, has collapsed into the sea. 


After hundreds of years, the striking rock formation – named Tieqa ta-Dwejra in Maltese – suddenly disappeared during heavy storms in Gozo. 

The Azure Window could be spotted in the Dothraki wedding scene in Game of Thrones during season one.


It also popped up in Clash of the Titans, The Odyssey and The Count of Monte Cristo.
