Prats de Lluçanès (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈpɾadz ðə ʎusəˈnɛs]) is a municipality in the comarca of Osona in Catalonia, Spain. It is situated in the west of the comarca, on a plain between the Lluçanès and Merlès rivers, and is served by the C-154 road between Vic and Gironella.

In 2015, the municipality voted to join a proposed new comarca of Lluçanès, of which it would be the capital, but the plan was put on hold due to insufficient support.[3]
