Id-Dwejra by Xandru

This is the western most coast of Gozo, sister island of Malta. The locality is identified as id-Dwejra. To the right of the photo can be seen what is known as the Azure Window. On the top of two giant columns of rock, each with a diameter of about 40 metres, rests a huge slab of rock measuring about 100 metres in length and some 20 metres thick, forming a giant window. In fact for centuries the Gozitans have called this rock formation as it-Tieqa (The Window).
