    Aetorrachi is a village known in the past as Valaka. It was named after a Turk, Valak Agas who was the owner of the region. After the liberation a village formed from population coming from Kandalo Skoupi and Karousa from the region in Kalavryta. In the summer of 1957 it was renamed to Aetorrachi. It was a community with Koumouthreka (or Kumuthreka, which was renamed to Dafni).

    Due to the Kapodistrias plan the community does not exist anymore, Aetorrachi and Dafni are now part of the Vouprasia municipality. Aetorrachi is near a lake formed by the Pineios river.
