Château de Labarom
This château is thought to have been named after the "Barum” spring present on the site in Roman times. The site as a whole, consisting of the château, dovecote, outbuildings and grounds, is listed as a Historical Monument.
Located at the edge of the three provinces of Touraine, Anjou and Poitou, the site commands a far-reaching view of all of the Haut Poitou Plain to the south. The southern section of the château was built in the late 15th century and the northern section in the early 18th century. The two frameworks are clearly visible in the top floor. A very large dovecote (2,800 pigeonholes), complete with a ladder that still moves around the outside, is evidence of the importance of the estate at the time it was built.
