What is so good about 18th century Versailles in the book 'halfway across the galaxy and turn left'?

I think it is good because there is an enormous building there that was built in the 17th century. It is also just outside Paris, the capital of France.
It was also a city. It was where Louis XIV moved the court and government to permanently. Versailles was also the unofficial capital city as known by the people for a while. The government was eventually moved back to Paris but Versailles then became the home of the Ministry of Education and is in charge of the education for the western suburbs of France. The Palace of Versailles was also built in Versailles.
