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.
