The Church of St. Nicolas and Sainte-Luce Risoul in the high Alps, 20 km northeast of Embrun, was built in the sixteenth century.

It succeeded then first church dating from the eleventh century, during the creation of the village by the monks of the Abbey of Villeneuve-lès-Avignon.

Some previous elements were re-employed in the present church, including the porch level.
