Lima, Peru 2019.
The Moche culture arose between the years 100 and 800 AD in the north of Peru.
It stands out for its sophisticated ceramics, such as three-dimensional depictions of animals and people and their iconic portrait pots, as well as for its architecture, for instance the beautiful Sun and Moon Huaca.
The detailed images with which the Moche decorated their ceramics shed light on various aspects of Pre-Hispanic daily life, rituals and tradition.
Fellow citizens of the Americas and the world, We reach today the end of a great sport celebration that we will forever remember with pride and excitement.
The Lima 2019 Pan American Games gave us the chance to see the skills and talent of athletes and recognize the effort, perseverance and gathering of all the Americas.
Now, we Peruvians feel prouder than ever!
We hope that all visitors felt at home here, they had the opportunity to visit our ities and tourist sites; taste our cuisine; and, above all, experience the warmth and kindness of our people.
The “Peru” you have seen is a country that is now reshaping its future with energy and hard work, just like our ancestors did thousands of years ago. We are working to achieve great things.
