Time Out says

A neighbourhood butcher's where they'll recommend the best ingredients for your requirements, even if they're the cheapest

Can Rigo is a butcher's that's lasted for generations, the type that the grandmothers of today's residents would certainly approve of. The friendliness and patience that customers encounter when seeking the ingredients for their first attempts at traditional Catalan dishes have no price; and you can go there with no fear for your wallets, as it's by no means one of the most expensive butcher's in the centre of Girona. 

Their own meat products such as rabbit burgers and Iberian 'botifarra' sausage, artisanal pasta, wines and some well-chosen delicacies (try the chips of cod skin, they're spectacular) sit alongside the typical cooked ham and, take note, some Italian-style artichokes that have no rival in the city. Another secret to take into account is that they sell local pine kernels at a pretty good price, while the help and advice they give is abundant and completely free. They also have a shop in the Sant Narcís neighbourhood.
