The main monuments on this site are a square stone setting,
with 'mini-dolmens' in the corners. So far, i have only
seen these in one other place, Fagertofta gravfält.

then there are 3 stone circles, 3.5, 7 and 10 metres in diametre.
Directly beside the biggest one are 4 other stones, forming a square,
or a small 'avenue' into the stone circle

The stone circle can be seen in GE

Info post on site in Swedish, English and German

How to get there
Take the road from Nässjö towards Grimstorp and Bodafors.
After about 5 kilometres, you will see a white sign "Torsa Stenar" pointing to the right. Turn and follow the gravel road for 1.1 kilometres, and the site is to your right.
