One sight
Other sight

The village is dominated by a tower, vestige of a castle of Xe XIIe century, and the church Saint-André XIIe XVIIe XIXe centuries, built starting from the remainders of the old chapel of the castle of XIIe century. The houses border of the streets narrow, sloping and tortuous punctuated of small squares.

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

It 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 sheltered winds.
