History


Description

This is a spectacular limestone archway at Dwejra Point. The long ledge of rock forming the upper arch of the "window" is in danger of collapsing - not that this deters geologists and others from walking across it to scan the rocky ledges for fossilised sea creatures or to get a good photograph. Erosion by the sea over thousands of years has formed this monumental arch along with numerous caves along the coast. See also Inland Sea.
