The Village of Roquebrun, lies in the valley of the coastal river Orb, is called "Nice of Herault" because of its microclimate. In a Mediterranean garden with the top of the village, but also in the streets, the mimosas, orange trees, lemon trees and arid plants of regions open out, benefitting from a slope well exposed and protected against winds.

Le village is dominated by the Saint-André church of XIIe XVIIe XIXe centuries, built starting from the remainders of the old vault castrale of XIIe century.
It is also dominated by a tower, vestige of a castle of Xe XIIe century. Narrow streets, sloping and tortuous punctuated of small squares, make it possible to reach the houses, high.

Roquebrun, in occitan Ròcabrun, is a French common, located in the department of the Herault of the Languedoc-Roussillon area, populated of 576 Roquebrunais in 1999, distributed on 40 km², that is to say 14 hab./km².
