Lövsta (or Roma kyrkby) is a locality situated in Gotland Municipality, Gotland County, Sweden with 261 inhabitants in 2010.[1]

In 1995 the locality known as Roma was divided by Statistics Sweden into a part with the tentative name of "Roma kyrkby" (pop. 277) and the remaining part that was referred to as Roma (pop. 902). It was given the name "Romakloster" as a postal address to avoid confusion with the Italian capital.[2] Some confusion is caused by the fact that Lövsta/Roma kyrkby has been referred to as "Roma" in the statistical figures since 2000.[3]
