Artist's Description

The Azure Window (Maltese: Tieqa Żerqa) is a natural arch in the Maltese island of Gozo featuring a table-like rock over the sea. The Inland Sea, Gozo, and Dwejra Bay, were created millions of years ago when two limestone caves collapsed. This and the near by Blue Hole and Inland sea are popular scuba diving sites. The arch is 50m high (i have posted a pic with ppl against the arch to get an idea of its size). People should avoid walking over the arch as the window is in danger of collapsing, as the notices there say. As you can see in the image below, a post on the site says that this is a World Heritage Site. There one can see hundreds and hundreds of fossils (see picture here), apart from other rocks such as the Crocodile Rock, the Fungus Rock, the Blue Hole.

Dwejra is a tourist village that belongs to the town of St. Lawrence, Gozo, Malta.
