**Summary:**Given a tiling with finite local complexity and a finite number of patterns up to translation , we associate a $C^*$-algebra to it. We show that this $C^*$-algebra is a recursive subhomogeneous algebra and characterize its ideals. In the case of a substitution tiling, that also has primitivity and recognizability, we use the construction mentioned above, on each of the inflated tilings, to obtain an inductive limit $C^*$-algebra that encodes the dynamics of the inflation map. We show that this $C^*$-algebra is simple.
