The Tor is the seat of House Jordayne in Dorne. It is located on the southern shore of the Sea of Dorne, north of the Scourge.
Prior to Nymeria's War, the Tor was the seat of kings from House Jordayne.
Myria Jordayne, Lady of the Tor, hosts games at the castle to delay Ser Balon Swann during his journey to Sunspear.
The Tor is named by George R. R. Martin in reference to Tor, the publisher of Robert Jordan, who is the namesake of House Jordayne.
