Tôr is located inland in the transitional area between the fertile Barrocal landscape and the Serra de Calderão  range of hills. The area near Tôr and the neighbouring Querença is rich in water with numerous springs and is very important to the water supply of Loulé and Quarteira.

The nature reserve Fonte de Benémola is located between Tôr and Querença. On the borders of the Ribeira da Menalva, which crosses this important ecological system, a rich display of diverse flora and fauna can be seen. A pathway runs alongside the creek to protect this area, and allow visitors to enjoy the diversity of the reserve without damaging it.
