Troy, 2004 | Filmed in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico at Playa El Faro Viejo

”Troy,” initially budgeted at $150 million, boasts 1,250 extras, a re-created ancient city, several epic battles, and months of location shoots in London, Malta, and Mexico. The stakes, like the film, were massive.

“Troy” produced by Warner Bros. starring Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, Eric Bana, and Peter O’Toole was one of the most expensive epic films ever made.  The production was highly publicized for the problems experienced with extreme heat conditions and even a hurricane destroying the sets.  In order to complete the movie, the great “Wall of Troy” had to be rebuilt while the overall shoot in Cabo San Lucas extended to nearly an eight month period.

Directed by Wolfgang Petersen retells the tale of Paris, a prince of Troy, who steals Helen, queen of Sparta, from her husband, prompting an army of Greeks to lay siege to Troy.

The larger beach scenes and the great wall and gates of ‘Troy’ were filmed in Mexico. The Greek seafront encampment was filmed at Playa El Faro Viejo (Old Lighthouse Beach), a couple of miles north/west of Cabo San Lucas itself. The beach is no longer accessible by the public as it is being developed by Quivira Los Cabos – a Pueblo Bonito development with ocean and golf view luxury homes and villas.

The fight scene at the beginning, where Achiles kills the giant warrior, is a dry creek bed called arroyo salto seco, between the bullring and Walmart.

In Cabo San Lucas, the extras were mostly Mediterranean-looking Mexicans and Bulgarian athletes recruited from the Sports Academy in Sofia, who all fought magnificently. The Bulgarians went on strike at one point to protest their paltry wages, which were later upped from 12 US dollars a day to 32 dollars a day.

After most of the filming was completed, the outer walls of ‘Troy’ were substantially damaged by Hurricane Marty. With the climactic fight between Achilles and Hector still to shoot, the entire ‘gates of Troy’ set had to be rebuilt.
