Medals of Juan Carlos

Can anyone identify the various medals that King Juan Carlos is wearing in the photos at the site linked below? Especially the large one on the chain? Is that the Golden Fleece?

It isn't the Order of the Golden Fleece. I'm assuming, from looking at Felipe, Letizia and Queen Sofia that JC is wearing an order from Argentina. Felipe is wearing a red sash (while Letizia and Sofia are wearing light blue- another Argentine order?) and the same medal at his collar, so Felipe and JC are wearing the same order. JC is wearing the collar so he was probably given a higher or the highest order, while Felipe is wearing a lower rank of the same order. If the order Letizia and Sofia is another Argentine order (which I expect it is since getty has a close-up of it), I expect it is a lesser order.
