Peru hosted the 2019 Pan Am Games, and is home to the oldest civilizations in the Americas. Peru includes the first known city in the Americas, circa 2500 BCE, and is one of the six oldest civilizations in the world. There is far more to Peru's past than just the Inca, which only lasted for a period of approximately 150 years, ending in 1533. (source: Wikipedia and Museo Larco)
