A sea of baroque blue and gold hits you at Kristine Kyrka (built 1642–55), which shows off the riches brought to town by the 17th-century copper trade. In the square in front of the church (Stortorget ) is an impressive statue of the rebel warrior Engelbrekt, by Karl Hultström. The square has been used for various civic functions over the years – markets, beheadings – and is bordered by historic buildings, including the town hall, once a prison for suspected witches.
