The idea of the UNESCO project Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity came from people concerned about the Jamaa el Fna. The place is known for its active concentration of traditional activities by storytellers, musicians and performers, but it was threatened by economic development pressures. In fighting for the protection of traditions, the residents called for action on an international level, to recognize the need for the protection of such places — termed "cultural spaces" — and other popular and traditional forms of cultural expression.
UNESCO encourages communities to identify, document, protect, promote and revitalize such heritage. The UNESCO label aims to raise awareness about the importance of oral and intangible heritage as an essential component of cultural diversity.

Good capture my friend Constantino, with the path leading the way through the market
Funny that there are hats to protect against the sun as well as wooden ones for cold days
Well done, regards

this is probably the downside to travel, you end up seeing alot of the stalls selling items like this.
Some people enjoy it, some people do not.
In terms of photography, it does add alot of color, interest and visual excitement - so in that way it works for me. thanks for this one

Congratulations, you made it to Marrakesh. Must be really hot there in the summer. I was in May and it was already so hot. What an exciting place to walk around and see all that is happening and so many things to buy and eat. This takes me back to my own trip here. I still have so many picture from here to post, just not enough time.

colorful markets is a must when you visit places like this. Much to do and see and perfect for photographers. I have not been to Marrakech yet but it looks very interesting. Your shot gives us a good idea how it look like. Sharp and clear shot with saturated colors, well done.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition très relevée en couleurs et en formes.Il y a une belle diagonale dans l'image ainsi qu'une belle profondeur.

Une heure ou il y a moins de monde, c'est plus agréable pour profiter des étalages et aussi d'avoir le passage bien en profondeur, très jolie

A lively street scene, love how the elements play the greatest part to catch the eyes with the stunning colours in the fg as good starting point. It's well oriented with excellent depth as the surroundings are obvious features that have really worked for the shot Well managed exposure, contrast and sharpness. A fine street shot, Congrats

ωραία και ενδιαφέρουσα η παρουσίαση της παραδοσιακής αλλά και τουριστικής αγοράς με την τόσο πλούσια συλλογή από καπέλα. Η σύνθεσή σου έχει δυναμισμό και είναι καλά ισορροπημένη χάρη στον δρόμο και την ενδιαφέρουσα θέα στο βάθος. Ζωντανά και ευχάριστα τα χρώματα, ζωηρή και η ατμόσφαιρα που δημιουργούν το φως, τα χρώματα, η κίνηση και οι λεπτομέρειες. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή σου μέρα,

A nice market in Marrakesh, with well saturated colours.
They sell woollen headgear in full summer too!

The colors in this photo are wonderful; the POV is just right, with the lines of goods leading the eyes to the people in the distance. Good composition, good work!
