The earliest inhabitants of Susa were in 4200 BC, and it used to be the capital of the Elamite Empire. It got captured by the Assyrians, then under Cyrus the Great, it was taken over by the Achaemenid Persian. Basically, it was the setting of The Persians, which is an Aeschylus’s Athenian tragedy and the oldest surviving play in the history of theatre.
Today, you can still breathe the ancient air that can make you feel like you traveled in a time machine. All the walls and culture are still there with a fresh a gasp of those old civilizations.
