Susacón is a town and municipality in the Colombian Department of Boyacá, part of the subregion of the Northern Boyacá Province. Susacón borders to the north Soatá, in the east Boavita, La Uvita and Jericó, in the south Sativanorte and in the west the Santander municipality of Onzaga.
When the Spanish conquistadors led by Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada entered the Altiplano Cundiboyacense, the central highlands of the Colombian Andes, they found there the Muisca Confederation, the former country, home of the Muisca.
Although the Spanish missionaries already arrived in 1556, the village was officially founded on December 18th, 1809.
