yes, there are 2 established tags for city walls, one is historic=citywalls
and the other is barrier=city_wall
Not to forget historic=city_gate in this context.

There are also very few (i.e. not well established as of now)

Usually all these objects (if yet existing) are best represented by areas.
Particularly for city gates it might also be interesting to map dismantled
city gates as historic=city_gate (but not as barrier=city_gate).
