Torup Castle (Swedish: Torups slott) is a castle in Svedala Municipality, Scania, in southern Sweden. It is situated approximately 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) east of Malmö. It was constructed by Görvel Fadersdotter (Sparre) for her son, after the death of her second spouse, Danish riksråd Truid Gregersen Ulfstand (1487–1545).
