Situated at the foot of the mountain Monte San Paolino, Sutera excels for the production of cereals, almonds, and olives. Cattle breeding and sheep farms are consistent because of the numerous pasture areas.

The name Sutera derives from the Greek term Soter, that means "il Salvatore" (the Savior). The first who occupied the land were the Muslims.

During the XI century, it was conquered by the Normans, who outstood the others for the various improvements introduced throughout the land. In 1366, the suburb was bestowed to Count Giovanni III Chiaramonte from Caccamo, whose family kept it until 1560, when it became property of the State.

The first urban structure goes back to the XV century. The current inhabited center was rebuilt after the disastrous landslide of 1905.

The most outstanding monuments are the baroque Chiesa Madre of 1700, the Chiesa di S. Giovanni, with its remarkable stuccoes by Serpotta (1656-1732), and the Chiesa del Carmine preserving a marble holy-water vessel dated 1500, as well as a marvelous statue of the Madonna del Soccorso.

The Sanctuary of S. Paolino is relevant, situated on the extremity of the homonymous mountain, preserving the Saint's urn.
