No hay dos acentos, sino uno, en la "ó". La "ñ" es una letra por sí misma, no una "n" modificada.

Los acentos son todos cerrados (á, é, í, ó, ú), no existen en español acentos abiertos como en francés o en catalán (à, è, etc.).

The only diacritical marks used in Spanish are á, é, í, ó, ú, and ü. (and their capitalized counterparts). ñ or Ñ is considered a separate letter.

From Wikipedia:

It represents the "soft" sound /s/ where a "c" would normally represent the "hard" sound /k/ (before "a", "o", "u", or at the end of a word), in the following languages:
  • Catalan. Known as ce trencada (that is, "broken C") in this language. Some examples of words with "c"-cedilla are: torçut "twisted", ço "this", braç "arm", falç "sickle", voraç "voracious", caçar "to hunt", llançar "to throw". A well-known word with this character is Barça, a common Catalan diminutive for the c one of Barcelona's football teams, also used across the world, including by the Spanish-language media.

@bobjenkins: "Barça" no es una palabra en español, sino en catalán. La c-cedilla ("ç") no existe en español.

Not every "modification" to a letter is considered an "acento", and as David said, there are only five cases of written accents in Spanish: á, é, í, ó, ú.
They obey strict rules to mark the tonic syllable when it's needed.
