The Chair of en Galceran is a geological formation that takes the form of a chair. This monument is located on the Costa de Sant Sebastià, next to Prats de Lluçanès, within the municipality of Lluçà. A curious feature of this rock, is the engraving of a stick and two spheres it has.

This geological formation is known as Chair of en Galceran. It is named after Josep Galceran, a resident of Prats de Lluçanès, who supposedly died there in 1840.

Josep Galceran was a resident of Prats de Lluçanès. On 5 August 1833, Josep Galceran led an uprising, along with 50 other men, calling on Charles V as the new Spanish king. This act marked the beginning of the First Carlist War (1833-1840) in Catalonia.

Josep Galceran was a Carlist warlord, and acted, above all, in Central Catalonia. Around 1840, Josep Galceran was wounded, in the Chair of en Galceran, while he was watching the fighting in the Merlès Valley. Many historians say that, due to the wounds, Josep Galceran died in this place. It can be said, therefore, that in 1840, after the Carlist army lost the war, he crossed the border with France together with his two sons.
