Hamlet of Ceps, in the Orb valley, in the commune of Roquebrun.

It is a hamlet of medieval origin. One discovers there his parochial chapel of XIIe century increased in 1898, his bell of 1647, and his bridge on Orb.

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.

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.
