Hi Xavi,

To my knowledge ASA devices currently can't terminate a GRE tunnel. If it is essential that the device does terminate the tunnel and you need firewall (or other) functionality then an 1800 or 2800 series IOS Router may fulfil your requirements.

If you need to run a routing protocol over a tunnel then the following link may help:

It shows how to run OSPF over an IPSec tunnel across the Internet using PIX/ASA 7.x appliances as end points - an application where you would traditionally have created a GRE tunnel.

Hope this helps.
