The Church of the Metamorphosis is located on the island of Burgazada (Antigone) of the Princes’ Islands in the Marmara Sea near Constantinople. It is a 19th century church built in 1868 on the ruins of a Byzantine church that might be identified with the Monastery of the Theokoryphotos. The church, possibly built in the 12th century, was destroyed in 1630.
