People around the world mourned the loss of a natural wonder when Malta's Azure Window crumbled into the Mediterranean Sea in March. But now the natural landmark is being given new life.

The natural rock formation, which resembles a window, had long drawn tourists to Malta and been featured in a variety of films and television shows, including "Game of Thrones."

The Azure Window had been eroding naturally for years, but its collapse was not imminently expected. High waves and strong winds during a storm toppled the formation that sits on the island of Gozo.

Scuba divers have begun visiting the site underwater, and the remnants of the immense structure form a striking underwater landscape.

“It's a loss to those who live above the surface, but for those who dive it’s one of the best things that has happened to Gozo,” Brendan O’Brien, who visited the site in June, told The Telegraph.
