The church of Madonna della Stella is situated in the southern part of the small village of Paciano, just outside Porta Rastrella.
In 1562 it was built in Renaissance style and preserves important art works. Among these art works remarkable are the frescoes by Scilla Pecennini in the side chapels and the fresco, depicting the Madonna, placed in the niche of the major altar. It was executed by a painter of the Umbrian school in the XIII century. In the sacristy there are other frescoes depicting the Stories of the Sanctuary. They were carried out between 1590 and 1620.
