Muro has no ceiling over it. So inside a house you have paredes. What separates your house from your neighbor's is um muro

You said "What separates your house from your neighbor's is um muro" is that not a cerca? How do I tell the difference?

For us, muros are made of bricks and cercas are made of wood or wires. (Barbed wires, maybe).
