What would you consider militarily to be a 'black day' for Spain?

July 22nd, 1921. Battle of Annual.

As per Wikipedia: The Spanish suffered a major military defeat, almost always referred to by the Spanish as the Disaster of Annual, which led to major political crises and a redefinition of Spanish colonial policy toward the Rif.

Well obviously there is the Armada. Although not a single day, as such. More like a few weeks…

The Civil War 1936 to 39. Tragedy for the whole nation which still casts it's shadow.
