Of the former church, destroyed in 1390 by Raimond de Turenne and again in 1574 by the Baron of Germany, only two pillars and a dedication dedication from 1539.

The rib-vaulted choir was rebuilt from 1598 onwards, and the nave only received its masonry vault in the mid-19th century, along with stained glass windows, a terracotta high altar by Virebent of Toulouse and a rich neo-Gothic painted decoration by Lamberty in 1898.
The building features several listed 17th-century altarpieces, including two paintings by Dignois painter Antoine Rouvier. The choir houses the statue of Saint Julien-Martyr, patron saint of Thorame-Haute, carried in procession through the village streets on the patron saint’s day.
The Rosary chapel houses a painting by Fidèle Patritti (1811-1867), an Italian painter based in Jausiers, in a remarkable gilded wooden altarpiece dating from 1746, as well as the miraculous statue of Notre-Dame de la Fleur, carried in procession on Whit Monday.
