The name derives from the Gallic "sego" (strong). It is a municipality in the province of Turin, which borders with Bussoleno, Meana di Susa, Mompantero, Gravere and Mattie. Featuring a charming mix of styles ranging from classic Roman to medieval, Susa is full of sacred buildings that conserve precious and rare artworks, examples of great aesthetic balance. It is full of important signs left by the Roman domination: the amphitheater, the aqueduct and the arch of Augustus, which shows clearly the considerable building skills and architectural genius of the great conquerors. The main center is dominated by the imposing Bell tower of the Cathedral, full of mullioned windows, and four-trefoils. The historic center, streets cut by irregular, is punctuated by numerous towers.
In 500 B.C., at the confluence of the Dora Riparia with stream Cenischia, there was a efficient and well-organized Celtic city. The area was invaded and conquered by the Roman army, becoming a developed center with great economic importance, but in later centuries it suffered a steady decline that ended only in the VIII century, during the period when the region was ruled by the Franks. In a strategic location, situated along the roads between the crossings for Monginevro and Mont Cenis, it was often the subject of bloody struggles, sieges, raids and several times destroyed by fire. During the XI century it was subject to the Counts of Moriana, until ceded to the Savoy, Susa followed their fortunes and fate.

It incorporates a tower, which previously was part of a Roman gate. The Bell tower is 51 meters high with an octagonal spire and pinnacled corners. The church features a triptych of the XVI century representing the Madonna and Child with Saints, a wooden altarpiece depicting St. Nicholas, by the artist Ferrari, and dating from the late XV century, a fine marble altar of the XIII century by Pietro da Lione, a beautiful green marble baptismal font, a side portal of the late XVII century, the choir stands of the XIV century, a rare example of art of carved wood artifacts, various statues of the XVI and XVII centuries and a XV century Cross preserved in the Baptistery.

- the Amphitheater, dating from the II or III century A.D., is located in a natural valley, that over the centuries was covered with soil brought from the flooding of a nearby stream. This Roman amphitheater is one of the smallest found in Italy with its mere 45 meters by 3, but features a tunnel that connects the four rooms where once upon a time, the spectators could admire the gladiators and animals before their performance in the arena, a stable for the animals located under the bleachers and the remains of a circular building, perhaps a spoliarium, where the wounded or killed gladiators were deposed.
- the remains of a Roman Aqueduct built with limestone blocks, whose pillars rest on an altar of Celtic origin.
