History: CEBAZAN can be proud to have vestiges of last very remote sound. Is the presence of the first inhabitants, the chasséens of the average Neolithic era (-4000 to -3200 AJC) proven by cut flint lucky finds, points arrows and scrapers? They bequeathed us several vestiges: three megalithic constructions and three dolmens. The Gallic tribes are confirmed by certain currencies. Moreover Cebazan was colonized by the Romans (many villas and tombs) and his name, for some, would come from Roman General CEPASIUS or SEBASIUS, Cebazan is quoted in history: SEBAZA (1101) and CEBAZANO (1173).

Geology: CEBAZAN between Bize and Casouls Bézires, is in the center of arc link of St Chinian whose grounds were affected by pyrénéo-alpine crumpling. In Cebazan, as in little other places, is attested the first small dinosaurs of the beginning of Jurassic (prints of grallators in héttangien) and the last large dinosaurs close to their extinction, at the end of the crétacé (many bones and egs in the sandstones campagniens). 

Environment: The visitor who passes to Cebazan is struck by his landscape red colors, still accentuated with the setting sun. The inhabitants of Cebazan are called "TIRED CAMBOS ROJAS" or "LOS PATAS ROJAS" (red legs). The most probable reason is due to the nature of the various red colors of the sandstones to reptiles, which find themselves in the stones, and limes rosy of old constructions. They very extremely coloured the legs of the inhabitants who worked their grounds, so their nickname. Except this, Cebazan is a small typically Mediterranean village in the medium of the scrubland. One finds amongst other things there kermes oak, cystes, orchises? In summer, the cicadas enjoy it and one can admire some rare insects such as the "Saga pedo" and the "alpine Rosalie". Cébazannais benefit some small from the scrubland such as: salads of campaigns, asparaguses wild and snails (small gray and mourguettes).
