The tour of the abbeys and monasteries is a particularity of the Susa Valley. Since the Middle Age, this territory was characterized by the presence of numerous monastic institutions that have profoundly shaped the culture and the life of this land. Besides the three great Benedictine abbeys (S. Michael at the Locks, S. Justus of Susa, SS. Peter and Andrew of Novalesa) we should not forget the Augustinians monasteries of S. Lawrence in Oulx and St. Mary at Mont-Cenis pass, the Carthusians in Montebenedetto and Banda, the Franciscans in Susa and Avigliana.
