Game of Thrones has had a lot of wonderful filming locations over the years, and that is one of the reasons making the show great. From whatever we have seen from the leaks of Season 7 filming, we’re sure that the filming locations we’ll see in the next season will be equally as good. However, the filming locations used in the show seem to be having a bit of a trouble lately. We had previously reported about how the Dark Hedges were damaged by Storm Doris, and now, another Game of Thrones filming location, the iconic ‘Azure Window’ arch from Malta, has collapsed into the sea from a storm.
Check out the picture of the landscape after the arch collapsed, below :

If you don’t remember what the arch looked like, maybe we can help you remember :
The arch served as the background for the wedding scene between Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen, right at the very beginning of the series.
The Azure Window, as the arch was called, was 50m is size, and located near the Dwejra Bay in Gozo, Malta. It shot to fame after its Game of Thrones appearance. In recent times, the arch had been deteriorating, with rocks falling off, and restricted public access because of the same. Since the collapse, locals have been paying visits to the area to check out the remains of the arch, which has made the local police make a Facebook appeal telling people to avoid the area.
Peter Vella, Director of the Malta Tourism Authority for the UK and Ireland, commented on the incident :
“We are deeply saddened to lose such a magnificent landmark. The Azure Window was a spectacular site and a natural wonder. Although this is a very sad day for Malta & Gozo, Dwejra still has other great sites for tourists, such as the inland sea and the Fungus Rock.”
We hope this is the last time we report about a former Game of Thrones filming location getting damaged. Talk to us in the comments, below!
