Tww Comment

The jagged rock formations on Gozo and the nearby island of Comino will have changed over the years, and it has not been possible to identify this one precisely. The most famous of this area's rock formations, the Azure Window, does not appear in 17th- and 18th-century descriptions, when it was still in formation. It collapsed in 2017, changing the coastline once more.
