Oratorio is a municipality in the Santa Rosa department of Guatemala.

On the outskirts of the regional centerplace, Cuilapa, Oratorio is mainly an agricultural worker habitat. It is surrounded by vast coffee bean and banana plantations. Oratorio sits in a deep valley, so the sun rises late and sets early. The small city is stretched along one of the international two-lane highways that leads to El Salvador. The stretch of land makes for a very narrow but long city outline. Pollution from semi-trucks and buses gathers inside the high valley mountain walls.
