Douzens was the seat of a commandery of the Temple. The Church Saint-Vincent is mentioned as parish survey of 1269. It was served by a perpetual vicar paid by la commanderie. The Church was rebuilt around the middle of the 14th century. In 1869, coverage of the apse was rebuilt and covered with dummy vaults as well as the robust nave.
