A: They can mean the same things, as one might use corridor or hallway when talking about a building.

Q: Qual é a diferença entre corridor e portico ?
A: Usually a corridor is long (and narrow), and usually it has doors on one or both sides leading to other rooms.

From your diagram, it appears the "corridor" is short in length (and also very wide in comparison to its length). Also, the "corridor" does not appear to have doors to other rooms on the sides.

In my opinion, it is okay if you call it a "corridor", but it is not a very good example of a "corridor". There may be other words/expressions to better describe it.

Here are some alternatives to consider:
- "antechamber" or "anteroom" (typically referring to a smaller room connecting to larger room[s], sometimes used as a waiting or sitting area)
- "hall" or "hallway" (this is appropriate in US English, but the meaning is slightly different in UK English. In UK English, a "hall" or "hallway" is usually the room/area which the front door of your house opens into)
- "passageway" (can be used to describe any way of passing between rooms, chambers, or buildings, including [but not limited to] "secret passages")
- "bridge" (sometimes a hallway/passageway connecting two separate rooms or buildings together is called a "bridge", but usually "bridge" implies that it is above ground)

Notice: "chamber" implies that you are talking about a very old and large room and/or a very formal or grand/lavish/opulent room. For regular homes and buildings usually you would use the term "room" instead. In your case, chamber is acceptable because you are talking about a large cave structure / grotto.
