Lluçà (Catalan pronunciation: [ʎuˈsa]) is a municipality in the comarca of Osona in Catalonia, Spain. It is subdivided into the town of Santa Eulàlia de Puigoriol, and the much smaller village of Lluçà. This village, prominent because of its monastery, gives its name to the surrounding natural comarca of Lluçanès.
Lluçà was part of the County of Roussillon area and governed by the Counts of Roussillon during the 6th and 7th centuries. Throughout the end of the 8th century and the middle of the twelfth century, Lluçà was governed by various Counts of Barcelona.
