Muros=paredes? Is this perhaps a difference between outside walls (of the house) and inside walls (of a room)?

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

It is the same in Spanish - muro and pared.

Interesting that the picture Duo gives for parede is an outside free-standing wall and the Great Wall in China!
