How Far From Saint Sixte to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a village such as Saint Sixte to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Saint Sixte and extending to:

  • View Our List ...
    • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON) is 30 miles [48.3 km]<2> to the southwest (SW). If you could walk a straight line from Saint Sixte to Parliament Hill, with an average speed<4> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take most of two days to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take just over a day.
    • The shortest distance<5> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 5,540 miles [8,915.8 km] and it lies to the northeast (NE).<6>

Footnotes ...

<1>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Saint Sixte) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Saint Sixte. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Saint Sixte

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Saint Sixte. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.6995, Longitude: -75.2079    
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<5>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Saint Sixte to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 306.074 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 302.484 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 300.88 degrees.
