The commune owes its name to the Priory of Saint-Julien

 Between Olargues and Mons-La-Trivalle, Saint-Julien is made up of 8 hamlets (Les Horts, Vilaris, les Castagnès, Mauroul, Auziale, Le Cros, les Sagnes, la Fabrègue Haute and la Fabrègue Basse) on the southern slope of the Espinouse massif. The commune owes its name to the Priory of Saint-Julien, whose church has been mentioned since the 9th century. 


The Priory of Saint Julien has a Romanesque apse with polychrome Lombard decoration. It is known for its acoustic quality, making it the perfect venue for classical music concerts.
