Atlantic Coast of Spain

I found this on the shore of a beach at Sancti Petri, Chiclana de la Frontera, Cadiz Province.

 

I thought it was a lovely big shell, went to pick it up and found it attached to a rather large heavy occupant!  It weighed at least a kilo and was about 4" round.  You can see some little bits of shingle seem to have adhered to the creature itself but it was basically a reddish brown and mottled.

 

Can anyone identify it please?
