Stora Torget means "the Great Square" was until some decades ago the center of the town. There was a bakery, liquor store, toy store for instance. Most of these have been converted into restaurants, often with names that suggest what the place has once been used for.
The only remaining grocery store inside the city wall is located here. The square is still dominated by the St Cahterine's Ruin on the south side of the square
