Labro Castle is located in the territory of Onet-le-Château in the department of Aveyron (Rodez, OccitaniaFrance, Massif Central).

Labro Castle is located 5 km north of Rodez, near Onet-le-Château.

According to the date engraved on the door of the house and on the sundial at the south-east corner of the building, its construction dates back to 1519 when the lord of the place was Anthoine Créato. The northern part was remodeled between the 16th and 17th centuries before returning to Canon Pierre de Borbotan in 1630. The house then had two perpendicular wings. Labro then changed ownership but remained in the Combes de Patris family throughout the 18th century. In 1811, the castle was bought by Pierre-Louis-Joseph Maynier, King’s prosecutor at the Rodez court and a new campaign of work followed.

All that remains of the original house is a wing and the tower, both in the Renaissance style and remodeled in the 19th century. In the meantime, the north facade has benefited from the addition or modification of watchtowers.
